Christina Forrer Tom Watson Performance

On the occasion of Grappling Hold, please join us for a performance by Emil Amos, Steve Shelley and Tom Watson, who will play a trio of conventional instruments with an unconventional goal. With roots of punk, jazz, folk, and blues, their musical performance will be an interpretation of the works and space around them in real time.
