Nov. 19 A Homegrown Music Concert Encore with ALEXIS P. SUTER. One of the most dynamic blues singers on the scene, with her powerhouse vocals she describes as bass baritone, Ms. Suter has become prominent on the national and international blues scenes. She is always a big hit at regional blues festivals. In early January 2016, she and her band put in a memorably fiery live Homegrown Music concert, with special guest pianist Dave Keyes. The full performance will be featured in this encore.
