I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. ... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Blue Stem Trio
Live at Uptown Bill's

Sunday, July 12th
3 to 5 pm
Uptown Bill's Coffeehouse
730 South Dubuque Street
Iowa City

Please join us in celebrating PEACE the best way we know how—with music! We are very lucky to have veteran musicians—BlueStem Trio and friends—perform a benefit concert in cozy Uptown Bill's Coffee House in Iowa City!

Listen to new twists on old folk and jazz standards, hear a few sambas and basa novas sung in Portuguese ( with guest artists Katia and Loren ) and an Italian mandolin piece. Be entertained with a comedy story from Loren and the ever popular sing-a-long at the end with peace song favorites! And that's just the music- there will also be food and drinks available and a opportunity to become a PEACE Iowa member

Suggested donation at the door, family friendly and handicap accessible, so please join Sunday afternoon July 12th—and spread the word!

Contact Virginia at <information[at]> with any questions.

Blue Stem Trio grew out of a swing jam in Iowa City. Loren and Margaret Brumm have played old time string band music in the area for over 20 years and are still active in Iowa City's Friends of Old Time Music. Tim Schulte plays in 4 other Big Band ensembles in the area.
