The musical partners, who go back to the alt-country band One Fell Swoop in the ’90s, feature a repertoire of original songs and inspired covers of the folk music they love.

During intermission, our neighborhood friends from Cafe Piazza will be providing delicious pizza for sale by the slice (to benefit Epiphany)
