This is open to all, friends, family, kids and it is mostly free. There are a couple ticketed performances. Everything is under one roof on 4 different stages, the main stage in the Monarch’s Pub, the open Market Garden stage, the Community Club Easy Listening Room stage on the second floor and the intimate up close and personal stage on the 27th floor. I’ll be doing sound in this room on the Friday and Sunday nights and taking pix the rest of the time. Hope to see y’all there!
