So come on by for a relaxing evening listening to some great music and stories. Rachel Hamilton is a native Vermonter who's been singing and writing music for over 30 years. "I come from a large family," she says, "and have found a lot of inspiration to write and tell stories about from all the years in a small space with many people. I love the way music brings people from many different backgrounds together. Nothing tells me all things are possible like music does - it's simply magical."
