Summertime, and the touring is easy (we hope)

It’s relatively quiet here in Boston as the summer semester settles in… though it’s 52 degrees today… because many students have left town. And many take advantage of the warm season to TOUR!

On Thursday, May 21, student singer/songwriter Liz Longley performs as part of the John F. Kennedy Center‘s Conservatory Project.
