We were happy to welcome two versatile young talents: Erin Krebs and Charlie Romano. Erin, with Charlie on the piano, sang Charlie’s new composition “That’s Why,” with lyrics by Robert L. Freeman (A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder). Erin also performed “The Joke,” by the American singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile, with Charlie playing the harmonica and the guitar.
