Steve Seskin to perform at Richmond synagogue’s North Bay fire relief concert

Award-winning singer-songwriter Steve Seskin — whose repertoire features seven number one songs — including Grammy-nominated “Grown Men Don’t Cry” by Tim McGraw and “Don’t Laugh at Me” by Peter, Paul and Mary — is set to perform a benefit concert for North Bay wildfire victims at Temple Beth Hillel in Richmond on Saturday, Nov. 18.

The evening of wine and music will start at 7 p.m. at West County’s only synagogue at 801 Park Central (Exit I-80 Hilltop Drive). All proceeds from the night will go to the Jewish Federation of East Bay North Bay Wildfire Emergency Relief Fund.

This is a concert you won’t want to miss. Seskin, a Richmond resident, is widely praised, with SF Chronicle’s Joel Selvin writing that his voice has “a natural lilt that can’t be learned,” and the Sacramento Bee’s Jim Carnes calling his presentation “simple, affective and effective.” In addition to hit songs, Seskin won the NSAI song of the Year in 1999 that became the impetus for a curriculum project designed to teach tolerance in schools.

Admission to the benefit concert is $18 plus any amount additional you would like to donate at the door. To make your reservations, call 510-223-2560 or email alisby@tbhrichmong.org.
