FUNDRAISER for CATALES feat. Derek Knott
October 13 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

We promote and facilitate community outreach, education, lifelong placement services and affordable spay and neuter programs.
“Solo artist Derek Knott’s songs are like little prayers- little secular prayers. That’s not to say there isn’t plenty of soul and spirituality in his acoustically rooted music. Even the laid back tunes smile warmly and swing sweetly,” -Rochester’s City Newspaper
After a stint touring with Grammy winner and world figure Joanne Shenandoah, Derek opted for solo performance. His first album Dream This Picture sold out on Amazon and his second album Speak Less Say More has been selling briskly since it’s release in 2012. Derek plays regularly in NYC and throughout the northeast with stops in Montreal, The Hudson Valley and New England. He is now recording his third album slated for a springtime release.
Derek, who played at Buttonwood many moons ago, is making a comeback and he’s better than ever! And this time, he comes with a goal in mind, wherein money earned will be given to Cat Tales, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping our feline friends who’ve none else to defend them. Help Derek combat animal abuse, just by showing up!
