SATURDAY Sept 15th 7pm
Co Bill evening
NY songwriters
Meg Braun and Davey O                                                                              
Meg Braun is a singer/songwriter known 
for her fearless writing, dynamic vocal style and performances that have charmed audiences throughout her musical travels. Meeting at the musical crossroads of old time and folk, Meg’s newest release “Restless Moon” is a collection of song-stories about women molded by the 
choices they made or the choices 

that the world made for them. 
VISIT HER HERE                        

Davey O. and his songs are Buffalo, NY.  They are your hometown.  Songs born from a work ethic instilled by a factory working father; steeped in time, then written like a conversation with your next door neighbor and as comfortable as a well-worn pair of shoes.  
These are the stories of American life.  Songs of labor, love, laughter, sorrow, life and death, baptized in waters drawn from a deep and timeless well.

together to make the music they love.   AND WE LOVE IT TOO!
