From the Start - Free in store performance 12/14 @ Noon

Join us Saturday December 14th at Noon
for a Free in-store performance with From the Start

From the Start is Max Allard (banjo, guitar), Otto Allard (mandolin) and Ruben Whitaker (guitar, vocals).

These current and former Old Town School students met when they were just  toddlers and have been playing together ever since. These three accomplished young musicians will bring a mix of bluegrass, folk, jazz & old time tunes to our in-store concert series.

From the Start has played in various venues around Chicago including Uncommon Ground, Schubas, the Experimental Sound Studio and the Old Town School of Folk Music. They are regular performers at Logan Square Farmers market, and they have played multiple  house concerts and festivals including our own Square Roots Festival right here in Lincoln Square. Max was recently the recipient of the 2019 FreshGrass Banjo Award and was the winner of the 2018 RockyGrass Banjo Competition. 

Don't miss this one!
