Musicians unite

to help a friend

Mumbo Gumbo, Joe Craven and Way Out West, guitarists Keith Little and Jim Nunally and Sacramento’s Don’t Look Down are among the hot Northern California musicians lining up for a benefit concert Saturday, April 21, at 7 p.m. in Loomis at the Blue Goose Fruit Shed.
