Songbird on the Rise - Jenna Lindo performs July 25
fresh heart-felt folk singer will win your heart 



A multi-instrumentalist and songwriter with serious spark, Jenna Lindbo is going to find her way into your heart-it's only a matter of time.  With a voice that resonates across gener-ations, Jenna captivates listeners of all ages and transports them to the worlds she sings about, where life feels a little brighter.  Jenna is one-half wise old woman, one-half goofy little kid, and one-half positively-rocking, toe-tapping, guitar-smacking, hand-clapping genius songwriter.

"If you don't have fun listening to Jenna, it's pretty much your fault."  -Peter Mulvey

July 25, 7:30 pm $15 suggested/ pay as you can
