Floyd-based but ever-roving folkie Bill Hudson’s Feel Good Tour rolls on. The tour, which centers on distributing musical instruments to students in need, has a concert planned for tonight at Community High School’s June M. McBroom Theater.
Headlining the show are David Bernz and James Durst, both revered folkies with deep resumes. Bernz co-produced both “Tomorrow’s Children” and “At 89,” Grammy Award-winning records for Pete Seeger.
The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $12 or a single band or folk instrument, according to the show flyer that Hudson sent us.
I was hoping that I could report the Veterans Green Bus will be there, too. The biodiesel-fueled, military green-painted old bus was parked in front of the paper yesterday, and as I walked into the lobby, wondering what was the deal with that thing, Hudson himself greeted me in the lobby and took me out to meet bus driver/first responder Gordon Soderberg, a Navy veteran whom Hudson met when they were both helping out in Louisiana, post-Katrina.
Soderberg’s bus had made a stop at a music store — picking up some guitar cases for Hudson’s cause — on the way back from helping out after Hurricane Sandy, in New York.
He seems like a cool guy who likes to ramble and likes to help out, but it looks like his bus might need some help now, too. According to the bus’s facebook page, it is broken down at the Home Depot (
not sure which one) on Hershberger Road. Good luck to those guys! Hope they get the help they need.
