Dave Eggar is one of the most amazing and humble musicians to grace the stage of The Willow Tree. He has a resume that allows him to charge the big bucks for any performace. but when he plays for us, he asks that we only charge $5. Because he "wants everyone to be able to afford it."
He is truely an awe inspiring performer all on his own, but he is bringing with him an amazing entourage of musicians that makes this one of the best shows you will ever see. It's like getting on a magic ride and standing in awe when it comes to a stop. But if you have seen it, you know all that.
