Concert in Winterville to help a musician and raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease


A Social People concert with The Inglesbys is scheduled for Friday in Winterville to benefit Alzheimer’s disease awareness and musician Betsy Ingelsby.

Ingelsby, a longtime musician and former member of Calliope Fair, was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, according to Social People member Dodd Ferrell.

The event takes place from 6-11 p.m. at the Marigold Auditorium for Arts and Culture, 373 N. Church St., Winterville. Tickets range from $20 to $75 and are available at

Dodd, who is Inglesby’s cousin, said when he learned of his diagnosis, he thought about his life and his music.

“We’re going to play some of these songs along with songs she’s written and a lot of musician friends from years past are going to join us,” he said.

Among those expected at the concert are the group Stewart and Winfield; Montana resident Aaron Parett, who was a longtime member of the Athens music scene; and Jim Creeggan of Canadian rock band The Barenaked Ladies.

“The idea is to just come to the show and your ticket price will go toward making a recording of the Social People songs to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s disease,” Dodd said.

Social People, Dodd said, is a group formed specifically for this event. He described the group as a “theatrical acoustic ensemble”.

The concert will be recorded live for a special video.
