Benefiddle - A Concert to Benefit Davey Poland
The friends of Davey Poland, a Bellefonte Delaware based fiddle player who suffered a brain aneurysm and stroke in early September, come together to raise much needed funds for the musician to help aid in his recovery.

With performances by:

Blue Corn Dawgs
Buffalo Chip and the Herd
Brandywine Valley Green Grass Ramblers
Brad Newsom & Friends

Originally from Bridgewater, Massachusetts, David Poland has been performing and teaching in the local music scene since he moved to Delaware in 2005.

Having learned to play the fiddle from his grandfather some 50 years ago, he developed a style and mastery of the instrument all his own. Whether playing Cletic, Bluegrass, Swing, Blues or Old Time, he brings a smooth sound with seemingly effortless ease to any musical setting. Over the years, he has been a contributor to such area bands as Betty & the Bullet, Buffalo Chip & the Plainsmen, Montana Wildaxe and the Unruhlies among others.

In September, David suffered a near fatal brain aneurysm which has left him temporarily unable to work to support himself. And so the members of "Buffalo Chip & the Herd", "The Blue Corn Dawgs", "The Brandywine Valley Green Grass Ramblers" and "Brad Newsom and Friends" are staging this "Benefiddle" to help raise funds for this universally loved and admired musician.
