Jessi Colter and Waymore’s Blues Band (Waylon Jennings’ last band), along with singer/songwriter Jamey Johnson, have been announced as performers for the Full Moon Full Life concert Sept. 29 in Normandy, TN. Proceeds from the event benefit pancreatic cancer research at the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) and Johns Hopkins Medicine.
Johnson’s latest album is Livin’ For a Song: a Tribute to Hank Cochran, inspired by the late songwriter who lost his battle with pancreatic cancer in 2010. The vinyl version of the album hits stores Sept. 25, the same day as Goin’ Down Rockin’, a collection of Waylon Jennings’ last recordings.
The concert begins at 6 pm in front of the River Cafe on Front Street in Normandy. River Cafe was founded by former Jennings assistant Nikki Mitchell (also a friend of Johnson’s), who has been battling pancreatic cancer since 2010.
Seventy-five percent of proceeds will go to TGen and 25 percent will go to Johns Hopkins. Advance tickets are $20 and are available here. Tickets will be $25 at the gate.
