Stephen Fearing is back in the Guelph area for an Eden Mills Community Hall fundraiser on Saturday April 4. His solo performance will draw on his eighth and most recent solo recording “Between Hurricanes” (2013). Guelph based singer-songwriter Jane Lewis, who released her debut self-titled album in 2014, will be the opening act. It is hoped that the concert will help pay for the ongoing refurbishment and energy-retrofit of the Hall. Check out our recent interview with Stephen Fearing here.
