Costello’s shows at GAMH come in addition to his appearance on the afternoon of Friday, September 30 at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. Elvis’ band for the Hunter/Garcia tributes will feature Larry Campbell, Teresa Williams, Ruth Davies, Paul Revelli and Austin deLone.
“We are so lucky to have Elvis as a friend and adviser to Prader-Willi Homes of California,” PWHC Executive Director Austin de Lone said in a press release. “This is a momentous occasion, as we have purchased our first home and are making the final push to fund renovations and give our first residents the specialized care they and their families have been dreaming of. The overwhelming requests for placement in this first house reinforces the importance of PWHC’s mission to purchase and support the multiple homes for the large number of California residents with PWS who lack the kind of housing they need.”
