PRINCETON — A creative effort to raise donations for the local Salvation Army is set for September 7.
Popular country band, Adairs Run, will be performing at the Chuck Mathena Center to support Grant's Supermarket's canned food drive. According to the Chuck Mathena Center website, the food donations will go to benefit the local Salvation Army locations.
Though the group is based in Nashville, TN the band has roots in Princeton. Todd Cameron, half of the duo, is originally from Princeton. According to the Adairs Run website, Cameron's passion for music began when he started taking guitar lessons at the age of 10.
According to the website, Cameron's craft is rock and country inspired. His passion also grew from hobby playing to composing and performing at open mic nights.
The other half of the duo, Pat Pollifrone, originally from Salem, Va., met Cameron during Cameron's college years. After meeting the two then invented themselves as an acoustic duo, according to the website.
After playing in the Hunting, W. Va., area and others, the two set off for Nashville. Since then the two have shared stages with artists such as Florida Georgia Line, Jake Owen, and Chase Rice.
Guests are asked to bring canned food donations to the concert where Grant's will match all donations.
Those interested in attending the 7 o'clock concert may purchase tickets, for $15, at the Chuck Mathena Center or online at https://www.chuckmathenacenter.org/.
