Lisa Markley’s Friday evening performance will begin at 8 p.m. Markley’s sound is an exuberant blend of folk, jazz and blues. She will be joined by a host of world-class musicians, including Buddy Mohmed, Shelley Carrol, Drew Zaremba, Chris McGuire, William Foley, Andrew Griffith, Dillon Garrett and opening act, Bruce Balmer.
