This Saturday evening, the Stars and Stripes music festival to benefit the YMCA will celebrate its fourth year at Flatbread Company, featuring a lineup stacked with Neon Gold artists.

Rosanne Cash and John Leventhal, her husband and guitar player, performed at Flatbread Company last night in a concert to benefit the relocation of the Gay Head Lighthouse. A live auction netted $27,000. The music was priceless.
