This month we're in for a treat by ISLAND's visiting artist-in-residence, Abigail Lapell (see below), who will play a set of her original music following dinner (7pm). Then, we'll head outside to continue the music around the campfire with familiar songs (7:30pm).

Songsheets and marshmallows provided. Feel free to bring an instrument to play, a few percussion instruments will be available.

Family-friendly event, FREE and open to the public. Bring a dish to pass if you are able, never required. Tableware and beverages are provided. Wagbo is located 3 miles south of East Jordan on M66.

We hope you'll join us!

"Great Survivor is an emotional chamber, furnished with bare acoustics and anchors around Lapell's confident, smoky vocals. It's an impressionistic debut, one that feels like it comes from inside."
