Hot Stove Cool Music brought out the best in people Saturday at the Paradise. Inspired musical moments occurred on the stage, while donations flowed from the audience to the event’s beneficiary, Foundation to be Named Later, which funds several youth programs.
Baseball writer Peter Gammons and former Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein helm the event, which began in 2000. This installment included rookies the Remains, Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, and Deer Tick alongside seasoned vets Kay Hanley and Bill Janovitz. Epstein, who is now with the Chicago Cubs, enjoyed a warm return.
