The Big Cahoot

Local bluegrass fans will be excited to hear about the musicians who will appear at The Big Cahoot this year.

Yarn, a Brooklyn-based, Grammy-nominated band, and special guests Old Habits, a group based out of Raleigh, will perform Saturday, Jan. 25 at City Limits Saloon in Raleigh.

If you are not already familiar with The Big Cahoot, it is the first fundraising event of the year for Band Together, a local non-profit organization with the mission of  using live music as a platform for social change.

The event offers a VIP ticket option of $75 that includes dinner at the Durham-based barbecue restaurant the Q Shack, three drink tickets and early admission.

For those looking for a general admission option, advance tickets will cost you $12, but the price will rise to $15 on the day of the show.

The proceeds from the event will support its nonprofit partners, Communities In Schools of Durham and Communities In Schools of Wake County, which are both dropout prevention agencies.

Since its origin of September 11, 2001, Band Together  has raised nearly $3 million for the Triangle community. The organization  is also completely volunteer-based, with help from more than 512 people in the community.

“While the dollar figure is large, it is the number of people in the Triangle who we have helped that truly tugs our heartstrings,” said Band Together president and co-founder, Danny Rosin.

According to its website, Band Together believes that through The Big Cahoot, it can help reduce overlapping services in the community, and help extend the organization’s reach beyond Wake County.

The doors open at 8 p.m. for The Big Cahoot (7 p.m. for VIP ticket holders), and the show begins at 8:30 p.m.

Tickets are available for purchase through the Band Together website, or on
