This Memorial Day weekend, 92.9 and 96.9 WEHM will present “The Concert for Caregivers,” to benefit Stony Brook Southampton Hospital’s health care heroes fund for COVID-19.

“The Concert for caregivers” is a virtual music festival, featuring videos from many of  the national recording artists from the WEHM playlist, such as Lucinda Williams, Pete Yorn, The Killers and many other surprise guests. All artists have generously donated their videos, many of which were recorded in their own homes, that will be available to view at concertforcaregivers.com.

Local East End artists such as Nancy Atlas, Taylor Barton, Gene Casey and the Lonesharks, Inda Eaton, Caroline Doctorow, and others have contributed videos to support and thank local caregivers at the hospital.

“We are so grateful to all the staff at Stony Brook Southampton Hospital, especially now during this pandemic,” says Lauren stone, owner and midday host of WEHM. “Thanks to the generosity of all these musicians, we can gather together in supporting and raising funds for our local health care heroes”.

“The Concert for Caregivers” kicks off on Friday, May 22, and will run through Monday, May 25, at concertforcaregivers.com.
