Eileen Laverty, with Danny Goertz, November 26, 8 pm

Eileen Laverty was here for Culture Days in September and did a lovely solo set.  Now she is bringing her full band to our little stage, and we couldn’t be happier!  The Eileen Laverty Trio is actually going to be a quintuplet, as she has expanded her lineup to include Greg Hargarten on guitar, Downtown Jesse Brown on piano, Corey Hildebrand on bass guitar and Charles Dumont on drums.  These are all stellar players…it is going to be an amazing concert.  Tickets are $20 and must be purchased in advance.  We are expecting this show to sell out, so don’t wait too long to get your tickets.  And to make it an even better night, we’ve added Danny Goertz to the line-up.
