Vassar Clements Birthday Benefit
On April 23, New Yorks Tribeca Rock Club was going to host a celebration of Vassar Clements 77th birthday with the legendary fiddle player on hand and joined by numerous well-wishers. The collection of musical admirers will still appear. However, Clements who, as we have reported, recently has been diagnosed with small cell lung cancer, will not attend. The show will now also serve as a benefit, with the funds raised then allocated to Clements’ medical bills. Performers now scheduled to appear include Levon Helm, Tony Trischka, Buddy Cage, the Zen Tricksters, Michael Falzarano and many others.
