Legendary singer songwriter Phil Madeira joins us this Friday, July 31 for our next live concert
Phil Madeira is a multi-faceted musician whose career seemed destined to flower in the authentic, song-centered culture of Nashville. In his 35 years in Music City, he’s been a singer, a songwriter, a composer, a producer who specializes in piano, organ and accordion. Since launching his professional career in the mid 1970s, he’s been a trusted contributor in the studio and on stage. Quietly he’s accumulated important industry accolades, including an ASCAP Humanitarian Award, and a Dove Award for his songwriting, as well as induction into the Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame. As a solo artist, he’s released eight albums. He produced two volumes of the acclaimed multi-artist collaboration Mercyland: Hymns For The Rest Of Us and he’s the author of God On The Rocks: Distilling Religion, Savoring Faith , a philosophical memoir published in 2013. Phil comes to us through Will Simpson, long time nurse at EHC, and friend to Phil, who has graciously donated his time to us in support of music camp and fundraising for Chimehendge.
Chimehenge is an interactive community musical instrument of epic proportions. Created by the fanciful scientist/designers at the Exploratorium in San Francisco, It is composed of ten-foot tall chimes of various widths suspended on a frame that make musical tones when hit with mallets.
This interactive, audible sculpture will be installed in a glen in the woods on an offshoot of the main nature trail at Enchanted Hills Camp. Enchanting indeed!
Help us raise $25,000 for the surfacing, trail extension and installation of Chimehenge for our blind campers.

Support Enchanted Hills and say Cheers!
During the month of July, Stardust Winery in Napa will donate 20% of all purchases to LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired’s Enchanted Hills Camp, the only camp west of the Mississippi dedicated to blind campers. Enchanted Hills provides a quintessential camp experience for blind youth to explore, thrive, and gain confidence. Unfortunately, the camp was badly damaged by the 2017 fires and is now being rebuilt thanks to contributions from community members like you.
Enjoy some of Napa’s most magnificent Cabernet Sauvignon and support EHC.
