Jackie Washington, the Silver Leaf Gospel Singers and Eric Von Schmidt head the bill for a folksing tonight in Sanders Theater at 8 p.m. The proceeds of the event, sponsored by the Harvard-Radcliffe Liberal Union, will be donated to the Greater Boston Committee for the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.
Four thousand marchers from the Boston area are expected to travel to Washington Aug. 28. Present estimates for the total number of demonstrators is about 200,000.
The show will include Dayle Stanley, Mitch Greenhill, and Mark Spoelstra. Later in the evening Washington, a popular local performer who attends Boston University, will appear at the Cafe Yana in Brookline to raise more money.
