‘Unbroken Circle’ breaks fundraising records

unbroken.circle.membersUnbroken Circle, Wake Forest’s multi-generational string band, played for a standing-room only crowd on Feb. 1.  The benefit performance for the Shalom Project raised more than $7,000. The Winston-Salem charity feeds the hungry, offers clothing to those in need, tutors at risk children and cares for the sick. The Shalom Project runs one of the largest food pantries and free medical clinics in Winston Salem.

Cindy Hodnett reported in the Winston-Salem Journal’s Scene and Heard column that the Unbroken Circle musicians played many favorites for the enthusiastic sing-along, clap-along audience. “‘I’ll Fly Away’ was a crowd favorite, as was the poignant ‘Your Long Journey.’ Dr. Ed Wilson, beloved provost emeritus at Wake Forest University, was also onstage for the concert, reading several poems to complement the evening’s musical line-up.”
