GREAT FALLS – Award-winning Missoula musician John Floridis is coming to Great Falls to help kick off the holiday season for a good cause.

Floridis will perform a free concert on Thursday to benefit Family Promise of Great Falls.

Since 2015, the nonprofit has been working with congregations to help homeless children and their families gain housing and employment.

“He does a lot of instrumental, but also sings,” said Sharon Odden, executive director of Family Promise of Great Falls.  “He does familiar tunes and then does a different take on familiar tunes, and then some tunes he’s composed himself. He’s a very good ambassador for Family Promise and is a volunteer at a church in Missoula, so he knows what we do and really supports us in that.”

Floridis has been a regular on the Montana PBS musical program 11th & Grant.  He is also the host of Musician’s Spotlight on Montana Public Radio.

His Great Falls concert is free, but a goodwill offering will be taken at the door.  The concert on Thursday will be from 7 to 9 p.m. at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church at 1326 First Avenue North.

From the Family Promise website:

  • Family Promise is an interfaith program that provides shelter, meals, and comprehensive support services to children and their families who are without homes.
  • Our mission is to help homeless children and their families achieve sustainable independence.
  • Our vision is a nation in which every family has a home, a livelihood, and the chance to build a better future together.
