AUBURN, NY — Thanksgiving Eve — one of the most festive nights of the year in Central New York — will be the date for a concert to benefit one of the area’s most admired musicians.

The concert fundraiser for guitarist, singer and songwriter Loren Barrigar will be 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 27 at the Auburn Public Theater, 8 Exchange St. in downtown Auburn. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door.

Barrigar, a “fingerstyle” acoustic player, suffered a serious injury to his left (fret) hand while working with a chainsaw on Oct. 1. The “kickback” incident caused significant nerve and tendon damage that will keep him from playing for a still undetermined amount of time.
