Shoulder To The Stone is a collaborative group of Musicians, Artists, Song Writers, and other creative people acting in concert to raise money for those in need. Our first project raised money to rebuild a Haitian orphanage destroyed in the 2010 earthquake. (Find out more about this project using the links below.)
We are expanding our original efforts to now include other projects. See the news items below to find out what we're up to...
For a donation of $15 or more, you can enjoy the compliation cd from the Haiti project, and of course, you can give as much as you'd like.
And now we say farewell to another of our dear friends. Mark Beets will continue to be cherished as a talented musician, friend, mentor, husband, father, grandfather, uncle, brother, son...He has enriched our lives with his art and his heart, we will miss him very much. His wife Sherri has asked that in lieu of flowers or other thoughtful gifts, that you make a donation to Shoulder To The Stone.
And hey, Mark, you and Saylor save us a place...some powerful music is going to be happening just over that line...we'll see you later...
Please join us for an evening of great music, good munchies, holiday songs, and lots of good cheer!
This event is in support of our sponsorship enabling 5 teens to attend the 2014 Kerrville Music Camp, a program designed to provide youth, 13 to 18 years of age, with a quality music camp that helps them find their own sound and voice. Primary objectives of the camp are: having fun, building self-esteem, providing new experiences, teaching positive leisure time activities, and integrating music with developing leadership skills. http://www.tfmf.org/
The event will be November 17th, at Selia Qynn's beautiful habitat, home of the Habitat House Concert series. We will have potluck feasting at 6:00 pm with music starting at 7:00. You can RSVP or ask questions using the "Message" button on our facebook page, or email us HERE.
Here is the lineup, not necessarily in this order:
Today we find ourselves wanting to give back to a beautiful lady who has given support to so many, and has given of her resources to make a difference in uncountable lives.
Merry Ellen Featherstone has been a cornerstone of the lives of many of the "Shoulders," with a youthful energy that continuously amazed us. Her devotion to her "family" was an inspiration to all, we will miss her sweet "bobbing head". She passed quietly in the company of family and friends. We have given a donation to her and her family to aid them with expenses.
Merry Ellen, we'll catch you at a show, later on down the road.
The heart of Shoulder to the Stone, Saylor White, has moved on to the next phase in his spiritual journey. We will miss him dearly, but rather than mourn his passing, we will continue to celebrate his life of giving. Those wishing to make a tribute to Saylor's life are requested to consider a donation to Shoulder to the Stone so that others can be helped in his name. Please use the link above to donate, and thank you for supporting this project that was so dear to Saylor's heart.
