Join us at the HIAC art gallery for an evening of entertainment, art and tasty goodies from our concession! As well as getting to visit Melissa Moore’s art show, we will be treated to hearing both In the Pocket and The Songbirds serenading us from the stage nestled amongst the trees. In the Pocket is a folk trio with Jill Candlish on guitar, flute, and rhythm, Betty Nightingale on the mandolin and guitar and Cath Gray on the cello. This group shines with their lovely vocals and tasteful backing strings. And the Songbirds offer great three-part harmonies, lush guitar and lots of energy! They will be playing an eclectic mix of upbeat retro tunes that we all love to sing along with. The Songbirds are Jodi Laine, Betty Nightingale and Cath Gray, with Larry Lingle and Don Geppert on guitars. It’s going to be a great night and we hope to see you all there!
