Music that builds

Daily News staff report

The Summit Habitat For Humanity is having a soup and fresh bread supper, from 5-8 p.m. Sunday at the Community and Senior Center near Frisco.

The event will feature music from local artists Nancy Cook, Larry Keen and The O’Smiths. Donations will be accepted.

Keen and Cook have written new songs together recently, and they hope to showcase at least a couple at the supper. Gail Smith, of the O’Smiths, played on Cook’s latest CD release, and the two musicians plan to reprise a few songs from last summer’s shows.

The fundraiser gives people a chance to learn more about Habitat for Humanity from board members and volunteers.

“It’s a very simple event, but Habitat traditionally does that on purpose – as opposed to some lavish affair,” Cook said. “It’s good food and fun music for a great cause. Having seen firsthand the work Habitat has accomplished, not only around the U.S. – Colorado, Florida, Georgia – but also in Jordan, I can say from the heart that our community is fortunate to have a dedicated group of volunteers carrying out the dream right here in Summit County.

“It’s especially challenging here, because land for home building is so scarce and expensive,” Cook added.
