FEATURED ENTERTAINER: WILL BAIRD
Singer songwriter Will Baird’s rich, warm voice and resonant guitar style bring life to songs that are well-crafted and wrapped around original ideas and strong hooks.
At his dynamic performances, you can hear a pin drop after emotional dark ballads…as well as laughter, clapping and singing during lighter moments.
He began his career singing in the subways of Boston, and first gained notoriety in the Harvard Square acoustic music scene in Cambridge in the early eighties. He has shared the bill with numerous artists such as Suzanne Vega, Tracy Chapman, Bill Staines and Livingston Taylor.
