Whistlestock V: An Island of Blues in the Heart of Marin

Whistlestock has become a favorite way for caring people in Marin to enjoy great music while benefitting Whistlestop’s vital programs and services!

This year’s concert will feature Grammy award-nominee Elvin Bishop’s Big Fun Trio, BB King Entertainer of the Year Tommy Castro and the Painkillers, and young rising stars Matt Jaffe and Bella B.

They will be performing outdoors under a shaded tent at Fairground Island for an afternoon of rockin’ blues. Come join us for great music, food and drinks, dancing and fun.


Whistlestop offers solutions to loneliness, isolation, and hunger for Marin’s older adults and people living with disabilities, providing a host of social connections, nutrition programs and transportation services. Whistlestop was voted BEST NONPROFIT and BEST SENIOR SERVICES in the Pacific Sun 2018 Reader’s Poll.

Get ready to have a blast for a great cause!  Find out more here.
