Upcoming Concerts at the Couth Buzzard will feature Claudia Schmidt on June 9, and Lindsay Street on July 12. Every 2nd Saturday at the Couth Buzzard from noon – 1:30 pm, Stew’s Folk Music Corner will feature tunes, songs, and community singing. The Events page lists some great concerts through the next few months. Keep tuned and revisit the NW HOOT as new articles may appear along with a new video of the week.
