From page A4 | October 04, 2011 |

The Woodland Tree Foundation and the Gibson House Museum will team up to host an evening of music, food, refreshments and a silent auction at the fourth annual Tunes for Trees fundraiser.

The event takes place from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 8, under the tree canopy of the Gibson House Museum, 512 Gibson Road in Woodland. Proceeds from the fundraiser will help the museum care for its many heritage trees and allow foundation volunteers to plant shade trees in Woodland this fall to increase the town’s tree canopy, conserve energy, moderate climate change and beautify neighborhoods.

The Woodland Tree Foundation also collaborates with Tree Davis on plantings along Highway 113 connecting the two cities. Former Woodland Mayor Gary Sandy will be the master of ceremonies for the evening’s festivities.

Several local wineries, businesses, artists and photographers have donated gifts for the silent auction. Guests may place their bids as they enjoy eclectic pop tunes by The Hey-Nows!, featuring Roger Trott on vocals, guitar, mandolin and bass, and Lee Milhous on vocals, guitar and banjo.

The second band, Funky Skunk Railroad, plays a blend of reggae and ska numbers, including original songs and cover tunes with Owen Sandy on vocals and guitar, Nelson Perez on drums and Noah Villagomez on alto sax.

Rounding out the musical lineup is Jenny Lynn and her Real Gone Daddies, a four-piece band that plays classic-style rockabilly and honky-tonk rock and roll. Band members are Jenny Lynn on rhythm guitar and lead vocals, Matt Dudman on bass and vocals, Chris Eynon on drums and Victor Skidanenko on lead guitar and vocals.

The Woodland Tree Foundation is a nonprofit, volunteer organization that plants and cares for trees in the Woodland area. Since its founding in 2000, WTF volunteers have planted and cared for more than 2,600 trees.

The Gibson House, land, and outbuildings serve as the Yolo County Historical Museum. On land originally purchased by William Byas and Mary Gibson in 1857, the house had major additions in 1872-77 and 1879 and was occupied by the Gibson family until 1963.

Purchased by Yolo County in 1975, the Gibson House is on the National Register of Historic Places and has been open to the public for more than 25 years.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $7 for youths 18 and under, and may be purchased in advance from the Gibson House Museum, (530) 666-1045, or at Watermelon Music, 527 Main St. in Woodland, (530) 668-4020. Tickets also may be purchased at the door.
