“Gimme Shelter,” a live music and art benefit for Interfaith Sanctuary, will be held at 6 p.m. First Thursday, April 6 at The Record Exchange, 1105 W. Idaho St. in Downtown Boise. The event is free and all ages.
This special event will feature:
- Live performances by Curtis Stigers, Eilen Jewell, Belinda Bowler with the Foothills School Choir, aka Belle, Rebecca Scott, Bill Coffey & Amy Rose, Andy Lawless & Thomas Paul, and Cherie Buckner-Webb.
- A sneak preview of Interfaith Sanctuary’s new music video made for the Idaho Gives charity event in May. The music video features a song written about Interfaith Sanctuary by Stigers and Los Angeles songwriter David Poe entitled “You Are Welcome Here,” sung by Stigers and produced by Lawless.
- Art by Mike Rogers (Precious Metal Arts) and Rachel Teannalach. Rogers has created a limited edition charm that will be sold that evening. The charm is the state of Idaho with a keyhole on top of Boise. Four original Teannalach paintings created for the “You Are Welcome Here” video will be part of a silent auction.
“Gimme Shelter” aims to share the story of the work Interfaith Sanctuary does at the shelter and the hope they have for all of their guests to one day have a key to a place of their own. The theme represents Interfaith’s belief that everyone deserves shelter and care, and that their guests, no matter where they are from, how they pray, who they love, all our welcome at the shelter.
