The Howlin' Brothers put on an amazing show Saturday! What a way to get the fall off to an energetic start.
Big thanks to Ben Moskey for warming up the crowd with two amazing covers and a very impressive original tune.
Pictures of both Ben and the Brothers will be posted soon.
The good news is we get to do it all again in a month with folk-based singer/songwriter Dave Gunning. Check out a couple of songs from his new album "Lift":
