Songwriters in the Round – April 27th

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!

Nancy will bring two of her favorite local FAWM-ers to the Brink stage with her to perform some of their best new work. Join Nancy, John “Das Binky” Argentiero and John Crossman for a night of new and original, intelligent and surprising music. All that for only $5!
