Spencer and Braden are a duo featuring Spencer Goertz-Giffen from The Kinetiks and that guy Braden who works down at Richard's Music. We don't know quite what to expect from these two talented music-makers, but that will be half the fun of tonight's inaugural performance. Hawley Shoffner's eloquent songs for piano and ukulele often take inspiration from biographies and historical events, but they’re artfully timeless in their dedication to good melodies and spirited performances. Her articulate piano playing may surprise folks who only know her as the ukulele-toting madam who dispensed the competition in the 2008 Farmer’s Ball. Listen to our podcast interview with Shoffner.
