November 2, 2019 - 7:00 PM 
SPL Concerts presents - The Whodos


​Equipped with music and lyrics of singer/songwriter/guitarist Walter Barlow (Limelight Magazines 2015 Male Vocalist of the Year), co-founder Joe Chirico on guitars and harmonica, journeyman Scot "Skip" Harris on bass and vocals, and multi-instrumentalist Bob Drouin (founding member of the band Pendragon); the Whodos perform their own brand of original Americana that has been described as "sometimes gritty, sometimes tender...songs you probably never heard, lyrics you won't forget."


The Whodos play a varied mix of contemporary Americana, old favorites from people like Dylan and Bruce Springsteen and their own original material. All acoustic with an electric edge.

This concert is not open to the general public, but Masons are encouraged to invite family and friends. A portion of each donation will help to support Pioneer Hall Masonic charities. Tickets for the upcoming Whodos concert are available for a suggested donation of $15 each for adults, ages 11-18 are $5 each and children 10 and under – free. The Pioneer Masonic Hall is located at 145 Pleasant Street, Somerset, MA.

For Failing to Prepare, is Preparing to Fail

Brother Benjamin Franklin
Preparedness and survival are not just a fad – they are a mindset from our not so distant past.  All we are doing is trying to make up for the time lost when we started relying on technology and government for our daily needs.  Let’s use today’s technology and blend with the skills of the past to achieve a greater level of preparedness.
