Valentine’s prep on “Bluegrass Signal”

thompsons_by_howard_rains.jpg

Saturday (Feb. 13th), 6:30 - 8:00 pm -

Guest co-host Allegra Thompson presents a collection of Valentine’s-related bluegrass songs, some of which feature Epic Similes (Allegra’s an English major at UC Berkeley), some are humorous songs, some tear-jerkers, and one set introduces a new band. And there are two songs by Thompsonia: Allegra and her parents, Eric & Suzy Thompson. Big Fun!
