Hard Hittin’ Songs For Hard Hit People

Caleb Stine hosts Hard Hittin’ Songs for Hard Hit People, a night of roots and folk music straight from the heart. For the sixth year, local and national musicians will band together to raise money for Heart’s Place, an overnight emergency shelter located in St. John’s (2640) that provides a counseling, meals, and a warm, compassionate haven for homeless men, women and children- the only shelter in Baltimore that serves families. The lineup this year includes Michael Patrick Flanagan Smith (Brooklyn), The Baltimore Shape Note Singers, The Mumbles (New Orleans), Channing and Quinn (Nashville), and Caleb. $10 suggested donation to Heart’s Place, all ages welcome. Hope to see you there!

Heart’s Place is a strong force in Baltimore’s fight against homelessness. For more than 20 years it has offered a place for those in need during the Winter months.

In light of the benefit, I’d also like to share a site I came across a few months back. Invisible People TV is a blog site run by a formerly homeless man who documents the face of Homelessness across America. With a compassionate and curious spirit he is able to elicit honest and moving accounts from the people he meets. The result is a collection of unfiltered, raw human stories. It’s a site well worth exploring if you have a few moments.

Here’s one of the profiles of a young working mother, trying to keep her family of 5 off the street:
