The Bull Run has been a Tavern for centuries and their philosophy is simple: use only the freshest ingredients from area small farms and providers; treat the staff and the talent like gold; support the local events and institutions that truly create community; and bring world-class entertainment to Central Massachusetts.
Prepare to put on your dancing shoes and get your groove on as trombonist and band leader "Big Sam" Williams joins Bonnie Johnson for some conversation and "musical gumbo" this Saturday on Colors of Jazz.
