August started off with a bang playing with Greg Koch, Bernie Williams (New York Yankees) and Gil Parris at the 5th annual Lowertown Guitar Festival. My college, McNally Smith sponsors this event with the city of St. Paul. A fun show followed with Minneapolis’s own Jesse Larson, a recent finalist on THE VOICE. Shiloh Baptist Church’s 50th anniversary concert was capped off with gospel recording star, Ricky Dillard. There’s no way to describe this performer.
