Local musician Eddie Miller passed away unexpectedly June 7, 2015, and his friends and family have put together several fundraisers to help his family.



More than 50 musicians are now set to play at Music For Eddie, which will be held from 12 p.m. to 12 a.m. on Sunday at the Windrift Lounge in Austin in the tent.

The event is a free-will donation and organizers ask that people bring lawn chairs, but coolers will not be permitted. There will also be a silent auction. Organizers are still looking for volunteers, and anyone interested in helping or donating items to the silent auction can call Randall at 507-219-1241 or Mathison at 507-219-1235, or sign up on Facebook under Music For Eddie.
