Geraldine's Artist in Residence: Nick Pagliari

Wednesdays in July, 8PM - 9:30PM

Equal parts folksinger and American roots-rocker, Nick Pagliari makes classic music for the modern world. It's a sound anchored by heartland hooks and sharp songwriting, delivered by a Renaissance man whose background is every bit as diverse as his art. Join in celebrating the release of his fourth ecord, "Hard Lessons," live on the Geraldine's stage.
