EVENT – November 4, 2008 – Bluebird Café – 9pm - $10 – Songwriter Tour Finding Missing Persons
A few years ago, a young singer songwriter named Gina left a gig in middle America, and was never seen again. She simply vanished. After a few months...her name was just another statistic and an unsolved, unnoticed case. Her sister, Jannel Rapp of the group Clementine began an organization of singer songwriters who would announce names, hold up pictures, and give details of missing persons around the country. That awareness has led to finding many, many of the people that have been listed as missing over the years. Each year during October and November, Clementine and the Squeaky Wheel Tour make their loudest noise, and this week they are in Nashville at the Bluebird Cafe for a one night only event with GINA artists and the families of many of the missing persons in Middle Tennessee. Won't you help us by attending?
An Evening with Gina for Missing Persons: Clementine, Kim McLean, John Stoeker and Lisa Montes, $10.00
