A benefit concert is scheduled to raise money for Lawrence-area musician Leo Posch.
Posch was injured in a serious bicycle accident in July, resulting in Posch being taken by air ambulance to a Topeka hospital where he was treated for a broken jaw, nose, cheek bones and tracheotomy.
To offset the expenses of Posch’s injuries, his bandmates from The Midday Ramblers and other local bands, including Split Lip Rayfield and the Alferd Packer Memorial String Band, are performing at 6 p.m. Friday at the Granada. Other performers at the concert include Drakkar Sauna, MAW, Prairie Acre, The Sunflower Colonels, Bluestem, Bonas Brothers Productions, Signal Ridge and The Triggs Boys.
The cost is $10 and all proceeds will go to Posch and his family. There will be a silent auction, and people can also donate funds online at www.mandolincafe.com/leoposch.html.
