This hard to define artist has had a long, national and international music career. From 1991 – 1998 he performed in the alternative folk duo, The Nudes with Stephanie Winters, then for 10 years as lead guitarist for Richie Havens and his Low Country blues band, Swamp Cabbage. Look for him to explore anything from primitive blues to his own original material and everything in between.
The event is free and family friendly, but donations are appreciated and essential to presenting the concert series in the Stella Center. A $10 per person donation would be appreciated.
Accessible entry and an elevator are available through the ground-level door. Free parking is available adjacent to the Stella Center.
