Tickets are on sale for the July 1 concert with popular singer-songwriter Rosanne Cash at Flatbread Company to benefit the Gay Head Lighthouse fund.

Prior to the concert, Chilmark resident Tony Shalhoub, of “Monk” fame, will emcee a live auction that begins at 8:45 pm. Doors open at 8 pm, and tickets are $200.

To secure a ticket, send a check to Town of Aquinnah, 65 State Rd., Aquinnah, MA 02535, made payable to Town of Aquinnah with “Lighthouse Fund/Cash Concert” in the memo line.

The Save the Gay Head Lighthouse Committee was formed to raise funds to move the historic Gay Head Lighthouse, which is threatened by erosion of the nearby cliffs. “Ms. Cash was approached by members of the committee and is supportive of our worthy cause,” committee members said in a news release announcing the event in February.

The daughter of country music legend Johnny Cash, she was born in Memphis and has lived in New York City since 1991. She also has Massachusetts maritime roots. Some of her ancestors settled in Salem in the 17th century and some were among prominent whaling families on Nantucket.
