Legendary Folk Singer Charlie King Concert Will Benefit Valley Post

Charlie King will perform a benefit concert for the Valley Post on August 1, just outside Brattleboro. Pete Seeger said, "Charlie King is one of the finest singers and songwriters of our time."

Billboard magazine, founded in 1894, calls itself “the world's premier music publication.” The magazine's web site says more than 4 million people visit it every month. Billboard magazine said, "With encouraging regularity, Charlie King emerges from his self-reflection to remind us of the happy resilience of the human spirit. His message songs vary between the funny and the frightening, but he pulls them off with unvarying taste, musical skill, and charm."
