Folk Music with Andy & Judy Daigle
Monday, April 16 - 7 pm to 8 pm
New England natives Andy & Judy Daigle have been singing together since 2009. Today, this talented folk duo tours through New England, the Mid-Atlantic, Midwest and Great Lakes Regions and have been featured on popular folk music radio programs. Andy & Judy do a masterful job of involving the audience in their performances. Sing-a-longs and smiles are the norm at one of their concerts. Even though their songwriting style has its roots firmly planted in traditional and folk music, the influences of country, gospel and blues can be heard in their songs. Join us for an evening of good times and great music! No registration needed. Sponsored by the McCormick Family Foundation.
