Pictures from the Adrian Raso performance at the Mill
Thanks to Adrian Raso and his band who performed at the Mill on Sunday June 2nd. The concert went ahead without a hitch despite some less than accommodating weather. Due to rain, the concert was moved to the Millrace Room for an intimate afternoon of remarkable jazz and spoken word by Raso and his opening act, The Mill's own Rubber Brothers. Raso performed as part of this year's Orangeville Blues and Jazz Festival.
Thanks to everyone who came out and we hope to see you at our next exciting event. See the whole collection of images over on our Facebook page.
