Jason Dea West – Library Coffeehouse @ sandy public library
Sep 6 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Man in western wear with an acoustic guitar. Text says Jason Dea West, Original Folk Country Western

“Jason Dea West is an American troubadour who sings what he lives and lives what he sings. Wests’ poignant lyrics are brilliantly blended with vintage country, folk and blues, and timely sensibilities. From epic guitar and harmonica instrumentals to a humorous song as a story, Jason never strays very far from the anarchic punk-folk roots of his beloved former band Barefoot Surrender and his celebrated current band Intuitive Compass.” https://jasondeawest.com/

The Sandy Library Coffeehouse, every First Friday year-round! Music, coffee, and dessert from 6-8 pm each first Friday of the month. Always a fun family event!
