Talk to us a bit about community, about yourself as an artist, and about PorchFest, please…
PorchFest is really a golden opportunity for the residents of one very important section of Spokane (West Central) to discover these other individuals who are playing music, reciting poetry, putting themselves on the line in hopes of both entertaining and gaining a foothold to become more visible in daily life. Hopefully everyone who attends will leave inspired to take a more active role in growing what is already a vibrant community!”
