Rivers Between Album Release Party, Sunday, July 21

Date/Time: Sunday, July 21, 3pm to 6pm Tickets: $10 (available online here).
Location: @theW Gallery, 57 Andrew Avenue, Wayland, MA 01778

Come join us for an afternoon of music with a unique group of creative musicians. Rivers Between is a Boston-area Indie Folk duo comprised of singer-songwriter Greg Kane and vocalist Kat Brooks. Greg’s soulful compositions, engaging folk style guitar, and unique voice coupled with Kat’s beautifully inventive harmonies, makes them a local favorite, making their mark on the music scene in and around Boston. Like a confluence of two rivers, Greg and Kat came together as solo artists who found that the combination of their talents was greater than the sum of its individual parts.
