How does good music for a good cause in a peaceful country setting sound?

Well then, you’ve got plans this weekend. Gas up the rig and round up some friends for a little road trip.

American country band Reckless Kelly will take the stage at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 5, at The Barn, 1.5 miles west on Smokey Boulder Road off U.S. 95, 10 miles north of New Meadows.

The Idaho-born band, based now in Austin, is led by by brothers Willy and Cody Braun, and includes mates Jay Nazz, David Abeyta and Joe Miller.

Arrive at 2 p.m. to get in on some swing dance action. Opening entertainment by Kevin and Dustin Welch starts at 3 p.m.

Tickets are $35 each and available online at shepherds-home.org or idahocelebratesgratitude.org, or in person at Albertsons in McCall or Roadhouse Java in New Meadows. Children younger than 14 get in free; however, a cash donation is appreciated.

The concert is a benefit for The Shepherd’s Home in McCall, a nonprofit foster care that provides a safe home for children who are experiencing abuse or neglect.

More information about The Shepherd’s Home can be found at shepherds-home.org or by calling 208-634-1152.
