Dinner and Music at The Carleton 

Join SAW for a four course dinner accompanied by local musician Laura Merrimen at The Carleton on September 19th.
With vocal styling's haunted by the soul singers of yesteryear Laura Merrimen's sound is bona fide and captivating. Keeping true to her roots she infuses a blend of rock n' roll know how and pairs it with catchy americana soul melodies and what is produced is a smokey wistful trip down memory lane.
