Sunday Prep Feb 25 | Sarah Mary Chadwick, Craig Dermody, June Jones

Scott & Charlene's CRAIG DERMODY will bring his raw, diary-like chronicling of young adulthood.

JUNE JONES built her profile shredding hearts in her band, Two Steps On The Water, she performs solo with bass in hand and her trademark cathartic voice which never ceases to command everyone in the room.
