The Junk Kitchen Concert Series #12 "Spring Cleaning"

The thaw that comes with spring not only wards off the cold weather but it can help break down creative blocks. We’ll devote this time to music that has been stuffed away in closets and forgotten about for the winter only to be discovered again during this annual seasonal clean up.

Performers and audience members are encouraged to bring in and play instruments that have rarely seen the light of day and/or play original pieces that have shelved for quite sometime.
