Seeger to play MLK day benefit concert

Fishkill folk singer Pete Seeger will perform Monday in Kingston at a benefit for a program that helps men adjust to life after prison.

Kim and Reggie Harris, Rabbi Jonathan Kligler, Bill and Livia Vanaver & Caravan Kids, the Ulster County Community Outreach Choir, Woodstock Jewish Congregation Youth Choir, New Progressive Baptist Church A Cappella Choir and Cantor Robert Cohen will also perform at this Martin Luther King Jr. Day concert.

The performance at the Pointe of Praise Family Life Center, 243 Hurley Ave., Kingston, is a benefit for Save Them Now, which helps men, who are not convicted sex-offenders, following their release from jail or long-term drug treatment programs, as they return to Ulster County.

Suggested minimum donation for admission is $10. Passes are available in advance.

For information, contact the New Progressive Baptist Church at rmwpdw@aol.com; or the Ulster County Religious Council at rcohen4@hvc.rr.com.

Also, Seeger will attend a small fundraiser dinner party following the concert.

Admission is $150 per person, or $200 for two people.
