Alvin Foster

Friday, July 16th, 2021, 6:00pm, with food service by Willow Rest

His band, Soul Eclectic, will take you on journey back to the 60s, 70s, and 80s with the soul music that underpinned Black people’s courage to be happy and celebrate life, love, spirituality and growth in the face of racism. While centered in Motown’s indelible catalog of music, Soul Eclectic also features and celebrates the artists that grew up alongside and after Motown. Comprising of Alvin Foster on vocals, Tricia Reed on vocals, Oscar Brown III on guitar, Briana Washington on keyboard, Min Jae Yim on bass, and Jarrell Campbell on drums, the band uses the timeless gems to deliver a fun and thoughtful musical experience.

In the spirit of giving back to the community each concert is partnered with a Cape Ann non-profit organization. The public is invited to make a free-will donation (So if you can, please bring cash/check.) This week's organization is Backyard Growers.

About Backyard Growers

Reshaping Gloucester's relationship with food. Backyard Growers began in 2010 as a program of the Cape Ann Farmers’ Market as part of their mission to connect residents with healthy food. With support from The Food Project, they provided backyard gardens to families in downtown neighbors. The program grew quickly to include new backyard gardens in community gardens, and school gardens, becoming its own organization in 2013.

Backyard Growers today is helping to reshape Gloucester's relationship with food. They provide resources and support to establish vegetable gardens at homes, housing communities, organizations, and schools. They are successfully creating life-long gardeners inspired to grow food.
