On Dec 19, catch local musician Nathan Dowdy!

Nathan Dowdy’s work has taken him into projects spanning many genres: Folk, Rock, Americana, Indie, R&B, Pop, and Classical, to name a few. He says that “creating music has been a wonderfully collaborative effort, including songs that I’ve written personally, which I’ve been honored to create and produce with the help of talented bands and teams across multiple projects.”⁠

⁠He plays originals and cover/requested songs featuring dynamic musicality and pop sensibility. His live performance is a fun, high-energy show with emphasis on crowd engagement – this is one night you don’t want to miss!⁠
