On Saturday, July 9, From Blues to Blue Grass, the musical wing of Young Patriot Organization (YPO), will present a concert paired with an opportunity for Chicagoans to show their support of homeless neighbors residing in Uptown Tent City. Music and entertainment from The Armoreys and The Hat Stretchers, plus special guests Anndrena Belcher and Mick Scott, will permeate the legendary venue, The Hideout, from 5 to 7pm. Benefitting Uptown Tent City through Northside Action for Justice, the event will pay tribute to Mick Scott Scarpelli, who was co-director of From Blues to Bluegrass in the early 1970’s and has been supporting the work of YPO to help the poor and homeless throughout his 45+ year career in folk music.  Hy Thurman, co-founder of the YPO and the original Rainbow Coalition, will emcee. Donations will be accepted at the door.
