Upcoming In-House Shows & Events

First Friday In House Concert - September 2 @ 7pm

Laura Birdsong & Mission Street Music Club

Laura Birdsong writes and sings from the heart.  Her lyrics will reach you on a personal level. She has lived on the east coast all her life, and now makes her home in the highlands of her native New Jersey.  She is a skillful fingerpicker who has been playing since her early teens and refers lovingly to her Santa Cruz guitar as her "most prized possession."  Birdsong dedicated her CD, CRAZY WISDOM, as well as the song, "The Right Thing" to the memory of her mother, who like Laura, was a breast cancer survivor. A lover of nature, Birdsong adopted her last name from the joy she experiences waking up to the cacophony of wild birds outside her window. 

Laura is currently collaborating with a local acoustic project called Mission Street Music Club, which is spearheaded by Rev. Gary O’Connor.  For this show, Gary will be playing acoustic and resonator guitars, Tony Sky will be featured on harmonicas, and Bru Rossman, a long time Birdsong Project member, will be sitting in on bass. They will be playing Laura’s originals together with some good time traditional country blues.

HomeGrownRadioNJ is proud to present a wonderful evening of music featuring Laura Birdsong and her band.
