Brendan Fletcher, the Randolph native who won a national following as a semifinalist on NBC’s The Voice in 2016, will headline a benefit show in Morristown for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society this month.
The June 14, 2018, concert at the Mayo Performing Arts Center also will feature Kylie Rothfield, who garnered critical claim during her run on The Voice last year.
“She’s an amazing guitarist and I think people are in for a real treat. She reminds me a lot of Susan Tedeschi,” Fletcher told Morristown Green.
They will perform some blues numbers together. Fletcher promised a mix of original material and covers, “to help raise as much money as possible for this wonderful cause and, of course, put on a show everyone will remember.”
The Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter has fond memories of last year’s benefit show, which raised more than $30,000 for the leukemia organization.
“Anytime I have the chance to play in front of a hometown audience for a great cause such as this, it always turns out to be an amazing experience. There really is not a bad seat in the house at MPAC and the sound is always perfect,” Fletcher said.
The concert is presented by Morristown Mayor Tim Dougherty and First Lady Mary Dougherty. Tickets are $20 to $125. VIP tickets include a meet-and-greet before the show.
Fletcher, 28, said he is working on an album, and planning a tour through the south and midwest.
“I’m leaving in late June, so this is going to be a perfect kick-start for that,” he said of the Morristown show.
