Eddie's Attic Presents, Tonight At 8pm On GPB On Stage

GPB On Stage features Eddie's Attic Presents Saturday night October 4 at 8pm, just after A Prairie Home Companion. Eddie's Attic is a unique and innovative performance space that focuses on listening to singers performing their songs. The room's intimacy and ambiance make for a close bond between performer and audience. 'The Attic has been a place to work, rest, and woodshed for a number of musicians who've gone on to bigger things (Indigo Girls, John Mayer), as well as a place for the audience to get close to musicians who remain timeless no matter how many records they sell.

Tonight's program includes legendary Atlanta-area guitarist Glenn Phillips, Kevin Lawson and the late Alyssa Hadley, and Gove Scrivenor, among others.
