Adam Granger (and Friends!) will be in concert Saturday, Oct. 8, at 7:30 p.m. at St. Anthony Park United Church of Christ, 2129 Commonwealth Ave., St. Anthony Park.
Granger will play acoustic guitar and will be joined on stage by musician friends Debbie Cushman, Dawn Tanner, Greg Lee and Elizabeth Ghandour. The concert will be held in the sanctuary of the church, which has long been home to the Shubert Club’s Music in the Park Series, an intimate and acoustically rich venue.
The concert is pay-what-you-can, with a recommended donation of $15. Proceeds from the sale of baked goods at intermission will help support church’s mission trip to Back Bay Mission in Biloxi this winter.
