Who says summer has to end?!

House Concert with Paul Sprawl

Paul Sprawl plays all over North America and several countries in Europe. Whether documentaries of real world characters met traveling, flights of guitar fascination, or cinematic visions with visual detail, Paul Sprawl’s songs come from a life long creative process reaching far, wide, and deep. His sensibility is that of a world traveler and a kid schooled in film and music in Southern California in the 60’s and 70’s.

Come join us for our last house concert of the 2018 season. Check the website for full details.
