The fourth annual Warmth of Home Concert will be held at the Flat Rock Cinema on Sunday, Nov. 10, at 3 p.m.
The concert, produced by Howard Molton and sponsored by WTZQ, Morris Broadband, Carolina Investment Brokers, Carolina Ace Hardware and Flat Rock Cinema, will feature local artists Tom Fisch and Terry Wetton and the debut of the new song, appropriately titled "Warmth of Home," written by Fisch, Wetton and Molton.
Fisch first became inspired to help in 2010 after hearing about the challenges some local residents face in paying for electricity just to keep their heat on.
"Something about that just grabbed me," Fisch says. "Most of us take electricity for granted. It's hard to imagine working extra hours and still not having enough to pay the electric or heating bill."
Once Interfaith Assistance Ministry embraced the benefit idea, "the ball just started rolling," Fisch says. From there, Fisch, Wetton and Molton began their mission to bring the show to life.
"Tom and Terry are great musicians and performers and they're both extremely entertaining," Molton said. "Their music is suitable for all ages so it's a lot of fun to see all the smiles. Since this is our fourth year, I thought it would be nice to do something different and write a song for the event. It's about a character who benefited from IAM's service — the story that tugged at Tom's heart and set this all in motion. I'm proud and honored to be a part of it and can't wait to hear it live."
Tickets are $15 and proceeds go to the IAM's Winter Heating Fund. Tickets are available at IAM and Flat Rock Cinema. Call 828-697-7029 for more information and visit www.flatrockcinema.com for driving directions and food and beverage menu.
