Vermont singer Grace Potter to offer Facebook concert to promote fair trade coffee


MONTPELIER -- Vermont singer Grace Potter, who performed at

Mass MoCA in 2010 with her band, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, is

going to be promoting fair trade coffee with a live, online concert.

The concert at Joe's Pub in New York will be streamed live Tuesday on

the Facebook page of Green Mountain Coffee Roasters.

Potter is working with the Vermont-based Green Mountain Coffee as

part of the "Great Coffee, Good Vibes, Pass it On" campaign.

The campaign is a part of Fair Trade Month, which is designed to

increase awareness for fair trade, a practice that gives farmers in

the developing world fair prices for their products.

The concert starts at 9 p.m. Tuesday.
