Bettman & Halpin
Multi-award winners Bettman & Halpin have a well-earned reputation for hypnotizing performances filled with irresistible lyrics, transcendent harmonies and roof-raising instrumentals. Their concerts combine high-energy upbeat bluegrass/roots inspired compositions, beautiful ballads with soaring vocals and heartfelt lyrics, and groovy feel-good songs that audiences will be singing in their heads for weeks thereafter. The Pasadena Star calls them "storytellers in the fireside tradition". Bettman & Halpin create an authentic connection with their audience. And they have become as known for their storytelling and playful banter as for their hooky whole-hearted songs and instrumental wizardry. The performance will take place in the church's handicap-accessible Fellowship Hall. Coffee, tea, and delicious homemade desserts will be available for purchase.
