"Hugely entertaining, intelligently conceived and executed roots rock with a wickedly cool and otherworldly twist on tradition. Estrin’s harp work is masterful." –Living Blues

Charlie Baty Memorabilia Auction to Benefit New Scholarship Fund

The fabulous live Little Charlie Celebration Concert held on March 10, 2022 is one for the history books, BUT, the SBS does have another very cool online event right here.

Rick Estrin and the Nightcats have donated some rare memorabilia, including promo copies of early LC&TNC records, tee shirts and posters.

The SBS also came into possession of Charlie's personal collection of tee shirts from all his festival days. And we have several commemorative Little Charlie Celebration Concert posters, signed by Rick Estrin available too.

Monies raised will go to the new Little Charlie Baty Scholarship Fund that the SBS is creating. Please tell your friends and fans of Little Charlie.

NOTE: The Auction ends April 7, 2022 12:00 PM PDT
