Lisa V. White – This Madison native will rock out with original songs influenced by bands like Heart and Fleetwood Mac. She will get you movin’ and groovin’!

Wolfgang Lochner – Wolfgang has a unique vision when it comes to his tunes. His rockin’ point of view is one of the most exciting we’ve had on Songwriters in the Round. We’re thrilled to have him back.

Jason Glomp – Jason is new to our show. Like our other two performers he has a bent toward rock. He has many fine songs of his own and has spent some of the last ten years collaborating with Wolfgang. It’s going to be a one of a kind night!
