Carroll Cafe Concert – December 13

Carroll Café

Friday, December 13th

National touring artists Joe Jencks, Greg Greenway and Pat Wictor have made their mark as veteran singer-songwriters, but Brother Sun is no songwriter’s round. The trio’s harmonies, as much as their lyrics, tell what they are about: warm as a campfire, stirring as a gospel church, rousing as a call to arms.

Doors open at 7:00, concert begins at 7:30

We ask for a donation of $20 per person in advance, and $25 at the door.
