Join us in the Chapel of The Convent Art Collective's repurposed nunnery for an intimate evening of acoustic sets by Avi Buffalo, Meg Baird, and Gray Tolhurst.
Avi Buffalo (b 1990) is a guitarist and singer-songwriter who first began making music on his own around 2005 at age 15. Now he is 26 and wonders every day about his purpose in the world and what to do with the rest of his life as a musician. He enjoys playing music, eating, learning new things, and meeting people who are beautiful on the inside where it counts the most. You can catch him at out wonderful show putting himself whole-heartedly into the performance of music and ask him absolutely any question that occurs to you about anything and he will try to provide you with the answer or the point in the appropriate direction.
