The National Literary Landmark of Beluthahatchee, the home and museum of Stetson Kennedy, is the venue for a new monthly concert series “Second Sunday at Stetson’s." 

The next Sundays at Stetsons concert, July 12th, features the Patchwork trio--Janet Rucker, Jolene Jones and Cathy DeWitt. These three very talented women sang and toured in a12-piece Blues Brothers Band, the Rhythm & Blues Revue in the 80's and started Patchwork to sing and play acoustic and original music.

The group, renowned for their stellar harmonies, has been featured on television and radio and has recorded three albums. Individually they have won several awards, including songwriting awards from both the Will McLean and the Gamble Rogers contests. Bandleader Cathy DeWitt was a close friend of Will's, and became friends with Stetson for his last decade of life.
