Madison Week In Music + Ticket Giveaways (9.5.12 – 9.11.12): Easy Star All-Stars and Tracy Grammer

Tracy Grammer

Reggae fans will be in heaven when Easy Star All-Stars take the stage at the High Noon Saloon on Friday (September 7).  Famous for putting an island spin on classic songs, the band will be channeling the King of Pop for their upcoming Madison performance.

Speaking of islands, our thoughts will be with the resilient people of Haiti at songwriter Tracy Grammer‘s (pictured) September 8 performance at Art In The Barn.  Donations gathered at the event will benefit Haiti Allies, whose mission is to “better [Haitians’] lives and country through education, meal programs, adult literacy, and reforestation.”

We hope you’ll join us for this week’s fantastic shows!  We have more information and are giving away a pair of tickets to see Easy Star All-Stars below.  Read on…
