    Live on Main: Jen Lowe

    Join us in the Dehn Gallery for an evening with Jen Lowe, a journey-woman through and through, armed with a beaten-up backpack stuffed with sentimental keep-sakes of a woman both beloved and scorned. She is a true natural performer, whether she’s pounding ferociously on a djembe or gently finger-picking her old guitar; as a multi-instrumentalist, Jen’s shows are spontaneous, fun and never predictable. Wine & beer available from bin228.
