UPCOMING:


-Jessica Fogle (+The Rainbow) – December 21st, 7pm
@ The Brew House (the former Coffee House)
Original songs, new and old, + a few holiday tunes – featuring Hunter Zhao on cello and Maddie Jackson on banjo-ukelele, and Leah Kristene’s original songs (aka Leah Uganski) as the opening act.   (*there will be no program at this event – so bring something for Jessica to sign :) 

(p.s. The Rainbow is a rotating non-band collective of people who perform w/ Jessica in her shows – there’s no age limits or amount-of-people limits, people are invited based on her random whimsy and musical resonance – this pic is from the 1st group who sang/played with her at the Rainbow in Saugatuck show in November!  it was a blast :)
