Celtic Rock concert will benefit PTSD veterans

Colorado's premier Celtic Rock band, Angus Mohr, will hold a benefit concert in Denver this Saturday. The money will go to The Hope Everlasting Foundation, which helps veterans struggling with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Angus Mohr has performed throughout the Western United States. The four-piece band combines traditional Celtic instruments such as Highland bagpipes and Irish pennywhistles with the power of American rock and roll. They have produced four albums.

The Hope Everlasting Foundation (THEF) was founded in October 2009 and provides confidential mental health counseling, holistic therapies or alternative therapy methods to Colorado veterans and active duty service members and their families to help them deal with PTSD. The therapy is offered for free or at a reduced cost. THEF also offers job assistance, financial help for food, utilities and rent.

The concert will be held at Scruffy Murphy's Irish Pub, 2030 Larimer St., Denver Saturday night at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $15 at the door the day of the event. The ticket price includes one FREE draft or well drink.
