Park City residents Ben and Paige Anderson are ready to see Anders Osborne and Luther Dickinson perform Aug. 2 at O.P. Rockwell, but not just as fans.
The two, who are friends with Osborne, are co-chairs of the event, which is a fundraiser for the songwriter's Send Me a Friend Foundation.
Send Me A Friend is a national network of sober volunteers who are on call to offer a helping hand and source of support for music industry professionals who are struggling to stay sober, said Ben Anderson.
"We had met Anders through sober channels, seeing that I'm a sober musician myself," Ben said. "When the idea to establish Send Me a Friend came around a year ago, Anders contacted Paige and me to see if we would support him. And, of course, we couldn't say no."
