NORTHFIELD — Norwich University will host a benefit concert with Vermont native and Nashville-based country musician Jamie Lee Thurston, to support Northfield’s The Veterans’ Place Inc.
The show will take place at 8 p.m. on Saturday, November 9, in Plumley Armory, during Veterans Day weekend.
Tickets are available for $25 until Nov. 3, or at the door for $30 the night of the concert.
All proceeds from the benefit concert go to The Veterans’ Place Inc., a community-based, nonprofit, 26-bed, substance-free, transitional housing program.
Thurston has recorded nine studio albums and tours regularly.
The concert is organized by The Veterans’ Place and the Norwich University student group that conducts the Annual Legacy March to support it.
Both the Legacy March fundraiser and The Veterans’ Place Inc., are celebrating the 10th anniversary this year, in Norwich’s bicentennial year.
Thurston, who keeps close ties with Vermont, is passionate about supporting veterans and has been a supporter of the Legacy March and The Veterans’ Place Inc.
