Wesley Stace (aka John Wesley Harding) Benefit Concert at Bayard Rustin Center For Social Justice in Princeton
Friday, July 1, 2022 – 7:00PM to 8:30PM
The Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice is proud to present a benefit concert featuring beloved musician Wesley Stace in his only area appearance performin’ as part of our First Friday Folk series!
Since 1988, Wesley Stace has released many albums under the name John Wesley Harding & recorded duets with Bruce Springsteen, Lou Reed, Rosanne Cash, & many other fab folx. Wes has published four novels, including the international bestseller “Misfortune”, & co-wrote Mark Morris’ memoir “Out Loud”. He also created Cabinet of Wonders, a monthly show that plays at New York City’s City Winery, which The New Yorker called “one of the finest nights of entertainment this city has to offer.” He has taught at Princeton (hometown boy!), Swarthmore & Fairleigh-Dickinson; writes regularly for the Times Literary Supplement & the Wall Street Journal; & recently traveled abroad to premiere “Dido’s Ghost”, the opera on which he is collaborating with Errollyn Wallen CBE. Now Wes will be comin’ straight outta’ Philly to do a benefit show for our inspirational non-profit organization & the beautifully diverse communities we represent!
All proceeds go toward helping our Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice create our new community activist center & safe space for our LGBTQIA kids, our intersectional families, & all our beautifully diverse folx, connecting our disparate communities, both locally & nationally.
IT’S HARD TO BE A SAFE SPACE WITHOUT AN ACTUAL SPACE…
