An Evening of Wine and Music with Award-winning Singer and Songwriter Steve Seskin
A Benefit Performance and Fundraiser for North Bay Fire Storm Victims
Saturday, November 18, 7:00 PM
Steve Seskin, long time Bay Area resident, award-winning Singer-Songwriter and Electrifying Acoustical Guitar Player, will perform a Benefit Concert for North Bay wildfire victims at Temple Beth Hillel, Saturday, November 18, 7:00 pm. All proceeds from the evening will go to the Jewish Federation of East Bay North Bay Wildfire Emergency Relief Fund.
Steve Seskin is an electrifying performer. "His voice has a natural lilt that can't be learned," writes Joel Selvin in the SF Chronicle; he is "a really exceptional talent," says Alan Lewis in the SF Bay Guardian. His “presentation is simple, affective, and effective," writes Jim Carnes in the Sacramento Bee. Seskin's award-winning repertoire includes seven number one songs, including Grammy-nominated “Grown Men Don't Cry,” recorded by Tim McGraw and “Don't Laugh at Me,” recorded by Peter, Paul and Mary, ” winner of the NSAI song of the Year,1999. This song became the impetus for a curriculum project designed to teach tolerance in schools. There are few performers who can face an audience with only an acoustic guitar and hotwire its emotions with a performance that will have you wiping away a tear one minute and laughing the next.
The community that was once called home by over 100,000 of our neighbors in Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, Lake and other counties in the North Bay suffered from devastating wildfires with loss of residence and lives. Temple Beth Hillel provides its support to fire victims by donating all the proceeds from the Steve Seskin Benefit concert to the North Bay Wildfire Emergency Relief Fund: https://www.jfed.org/north-bay-wildfire-emergency-fund/ Please join us for an evening of wine and music.
Admission is $18 or any extra amount you would like to donate at the door.
