Highlights: Matt Bolton in Concert & CB 2 Senior Action Day
Matt Bolton in Concert

Garden visitors were treated Sunday to an unforgettable surprise performance by singer-guitarist-keyboardist-percussionist Matt Bolton. His live solo looping magically reproduces the sound, feel and energy of a complete band without prerecorded tracks. Thanks to Matt for finding the time between tour dates to play for us.
