Join us FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26TH for a superstar act with killer songs performed by all-female country group, Farewell Angelina!
Farewell Angelina leaves everything they have on stage every night. They create “moments” – not for their audience, but WITH their audience.
Fiddles, guitars, harmonies, and a dash of attitude.
Expect these four strong women to deliver sophisticated songs that matter to radio and fans hungry for real depth, artistry and perspective.
Check out their amazing single Roughstock(and EAC!) calls “Our favorite new country song” : If It Ain’t With You.
Hope to see you there!
