Last year, Scott Marshall assembled a group of local musicians for a pediatric cancer benefit at Bethlehem’s Steel Pub.
On June 2, the now-annual event is back with an all-new, multi-genre lineup in the name of helping families of children with cancer.

Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center, located at 522 W. Maple St. in Allentown, is preparing to welcome Chicago-based singer-songwriter Edie Carey for an intimate evening of folk music on Sunday, December 10.
As a chill creeps into the air this week and autumn finally takes hold, things take a charitable turn in the Valley this week. Perhaps it’s a preview of the holiday season to come, but it seems that many of our local musicians are in a giving mood.
We commend them, and can’t wait to contribute to the causes supported by some of these…
