free Gifford concertRANDOLPH – Gifford Medical Center employees and volunteer Karen Warner showcase their talents on Thursday, Aug. 30 for a multi-act, multi-style concert.

Warner will sing to new and classic country tracks. Sanie Bly, who performed earlier in the month, will join Gifford employees Thom Goodwin and Joe Pelletier in a group called the “Mood Stabilizers,” singing and playing folk and ’70s rock.

And Gifford’s Greg McConnell, Claudette Goad and Mike Berry as well as Berry’s brother, Jim, make up “Diamonds in the Rough,” a blue grass and gospel group.

“Diamonds in the Rough” often sing together at church and have performed for Gifford events. Bly is part of experienced group “Two for the Show.” Goodwin and Pelletier both sing and play guitar.

And Warner has performed for several community events, including at the Randolph gazebo and following the Randolph Fourth of July parade.

“We hope to offer something for everyone and bring together the community for an enjoyable, relaxing evening with good friends and good music,” said Mike Berry, who is organizing the collaboration.

Hear this eclectic group of performers in the Gifford park from 6:30-8 p.m.

The concert is free and open to the public.

The Gifford park is located between the hospital and the Thrift Shop on South Main Street (Route 12), south of Randolph village. Ample parking is available onsite.

The concert is weather-dependent. If the weather is questionable, check Gifford’s new and improved Website, www.giffordmed.org, for an update.
