An Evening with Bat McGrath iCal

Saturday, August 10 2013 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Come join legendary singer-songwriter Bat McGrath as he returns to his roots in the Finger Lakes for a very special performance to benefit the Garrett Memorial Chapel.  Many in this region remember Bat for his early musical years in the 60s and 70s with former musical partner, Don Potter and collaborations with Chuck Mangione.  Bat now lives in Nashville with his wife, Tricia Cast, and has written 100s of songs, including songs for music greats such as Chuck Mangione, Kenny Rodgers and Wyonna Judd.  Bat has recorded a dozen albums, but particularly enjoys playing to live audiences that he can gather.  In the past few years he has taken to playing houseconcerts for 30-50 folks, as well as larger festivals including the 2012 Rochester International Jazz Festival.

All of the proceeds from the concert will be directed to make vital structural repairs to the Garrett Memorial Chapel - an historic National Registry site nestled in the trees on the Bluff overlooking beautiful Keuka Lake.

Nature's elements have conspired to threaten the Chapel’s future.  Seasonal use, steep hillside construction, and use of unique materials have combined for a difficult preservation challenge.  While the Garrett Chapel Trust has received recognition from the New York State Landmark Society for its care of this historic gem, funding remains the primary constraint in ongoing care and restoration efforts.  Community support has been the primary vehicle for restoration projects and we are incredibly grateful for Bat's generosity with this fundraising effort.
