Concert for a Cause: Michael McKean, Harry Shearer, & Christopher Guest
The trio, best known as Spinal Tap from the movie of the same name, and as The Folksmen in “A Mighty Wind,” headlined thisConcert for a Cause to raise funds for the International Myeloma Foundation (IMF).
Michael McKean first became involved with the IMF when a friend and colleague, Lee Grayson, was battling multiple myeloma. Since then, he has supported the IMF in Lee’s honor.
The audience was packed with fans of all ages – and they weren’t disappointed. McKean, Guest, & Shearer played all the favorite Spinal Tap and Folksmen songs and many others.
Special guest performers included McKean’s wife, actress Annette O’Toole, and their daughter, Nell Geisslinger. Harry Shearer’s wife, Judith Owen, a critically acclaimed folk-jazz-rock singer and pianist, also performed. Musical legend Van Dyke Parks was featured as well.
It was an incredible one-of-a-kind evening for a worthy cause.
