Don’t miss this unforgettable evening with Escaping Pavement and Chris Degnore paying tribute to Crosby, Stills, and Nash and Jason Dennie opening the night as Neil Young.
Hailed as “The most dynamic Americana group out of Detroit, Michigan” Escaping Pavement masterfully blends and blurs the lines of Bluegrass, Folk, and Americana.
