Island Grass Music Fest Feb. 23 in the Florida Keys

See also

Contemporary and traditional offerings and original tunes by Florida Keys performing songwriters are to highlight the musical menu during the Island Grass Music Fest, set for 1-6 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 23, on Ramrod Key.

The musical afternoon benefits Habitat for Humanity of Key West and the Lower Florida Keys. The event is to take place at Boondocks Grille & Draft House, mile marker 27.5 bayside on U.S. Highway 1.

The entertainment lineup features a host of the seasoned performers whose talents enrich the Florida Keys music scene -- among them Howard Livingston, the Doerfel Family, Bill Blue & the Nervous Guys, Pat McCune, the Piper Road Spring Band and a trio composed of Gary Hempsey, Ron Baumann and event producer Terry Cassidy.

Festival attendees also can purchase food and beverages to enjoy with the music and bid on items at a silent auction to benefit Habitat for Humanity. Vendor booths and raffles are to round out the afternoon's attractions.

Proceeds support Habitat's mission of bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope.
