Amy Petty in Concert

February 7, 7:00 p.m.


$20 admission

At the same time overwhelmingly powerful and impossibly delicate, Amy Petty’s voice is haunting and unforgettable.

Her signature sound is on full display in her latest album, The Darkness of Birds. Sailing between lullaby and seduction, pleading and rebuke, her songs play out like short films, thoughtful and unconventional yet somehow familiar


Join us for an evening of unforgettable acoustic sounds.
