Ithaca musicians join together for a benefit at Casita del Polaris
Mickie Quinn writes in 14850 Magazine that Ithaca’s musical community is coming together Friday evening at Casita del Polaris to support Nicholas Hill, who has spent decades supporting and elevating the musical community. According to organizer Dustin Stuhr, “Having suffered a stroke in April, Nick’s road to recovery is a concern for all who love him and the purpose of the event.
“All proceeds from A Night for Nicholas Hill will be dedicated to rehabilitation services above and beyond what are currently available,” says Dustin. “Nick, a folk music aficionado and the host of the Nonesuch show on WVBR, has in recent years, befriended a host of Ithaca based musicians, all of whom jumped at the opportunity to perform for this event.”
The event, scheduled from 7-11pm on Friday, August 4th at Casita del Polaris in the former home of Fall Creek Pictures next to Northstar Public House, will feature many performers touched by Nicholas Hill.
