Foodstock benefit concert to change location due to weather

The location for Winters Mill student Jeremy Reynolds’ Foodstock benefit concert has changed due to recent weather conditions.

Because of excessive rain, the Aug. 5 event — coordinated as the student’s Eagle Scout project — has been moved from its original location to the Union Bridge Community Center, 4774 Ladiesburg Road, Union Bridge.

Reynolds, 17, decided to plan the concert because music is his passion, he said, and he wanted to find a way to incorporate it into his Eagle Scout rite of passage.

“Building a bridge or repairing something that’s old — that’s great,” Reynolds said earlier this year, “but I'm not really a craftsman … and it’s not really what I want to do.”

So to make a lasting impact without getting out traditional tools and materials, Reynolds decided on a concert where instead of paying admission, attendees would be required to bring a bags filled with canned food.

All donations received at the festival will go to the food bank at St. Mary’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, where the troop is chartered.

Foodstock’s line-up includes: 86 Bullets, a hard rock Baltimore-based band; Late Night Record Shop, which he described as a versatile band that can play a variety of styles; Buzzard Luck, a blues band from York, Pennsylvania.; Christian Harper, from Coffey Music, performing a solo set; Tim Jenkins, a local guitar teacher and conductor of the McDaniel College alumni big band; and members of the McDaniel College band.

Reynolds also secured food trucks to cater the event: B-Flat BBQ and the Caramel Kettle, both local to Westminster.
