Review for Lindi Ortega and Andrew Combs:

Lindi Ortega is a Canadian country singer who beautifully plays music that captures raw emotion with earnest and sincere lyricism. She will be joined by Andrew Combs, a spectacular musical storyteller who paints gorgeous pictures with his bluesy-country style. This concert will be part of their southeastern tour. Don't miss out on this duo whose mastery of alt-country is unbelievable.
