      Omega House to hold Livin' is Easy concert

      The Omega House is holding its seventh annual "Livin' is Easy" concert Tuesday night at the Saints Peter and Paul Lutheran Church in Houghton.

      The concert will feature blues, jazz, opera, and folk music from local artists and musicians, all centered around this year's theme of "summertime."

      The concert is to raise money to benefit the Omega House. Many residents at the hospice center struggle to pay for the services, and the money will go toward housing costs.

      Omega House staff members say it is one of their biggest and most popular fundraisers of the year.

      â??This is a part of the community,â?? said events and outreach coordinator Carol Pfefferkorn. â??This is a gathering of artists from all over the Keweenaw, and it's really just a wonderful opportunity for these people to come together as part of our whole community.â??

      The two-hour concert starts at 7 p.m., and doors open at 6 p.m. Admission is a suggested donation of ten dollars.
