"Satinwood," the acoustic classic band from Connecticut that has performed a number of benefit shows for local and national organizations over the years, is teaming up with singer Al Stewart this summer for an August 20th concert.

Net proceeds from the concert will benefit KIDS Can Make a Difference, a program of WHY (World Hunger Year), that is celebrating its 11th anniversary this year.

Special guest Howard Fields (of Harry Chapin's band and The Steve Chapin Band) will join the six-member Satinwood for this show, which will feature a variety of acoustic favorites, including classic Chapin songs. Then, Al Stewart will perform some of his best-known hit songs including Time Passages and The Year of the Cat.

The concert will be held at The Renaissance Ballroom at the Venice in Westerly, RI, and tickets will be available soon at

Earlier in the summer, Satinwood, with special guest Howard Fields, will also be performing a July 8th "Tribute to Harry Chapin and Jim Croce" show at the Majestic Theater in West Springfield, MA. For more information, visit

Satinwood is best known for its "Legendary Song Series," featuring authentic arrangements of timeless favorites from James Taylor, Sting, Gordon Lightfoot and the Neville Brothers.
