Locally Grown Music

Featuring: Billy Bauer
Saturday 10:00 am - 12 Noon

Billy Bauer picked up a guitar after listening to a Dave Matthews/Tim Reynolds album, and as they say, the rest is history.  He says he didn't intend on being a musician; however, that changed when he bought an acoustic guitar, and following the advice of his father, turned sorrow into songwriting.  Billy is one of the first musical acts to support the fresh and local music scene at EFM and we are happy to have him return again this season.  Don't miss Billy and his original music this Saturday at the Music Tent from 10 am to 12 noon on the north lawn of the Circle.
