Josh Calhoun Live From the White Pine

Tune in to WXPR's Northwoods Café Thursday, January 14th, at 7 pm for a live broadcast performance with ABZ. 

Hailing once again from the Northwoods of Wisconsin, Abz is an indie/folk singer/songwriter kinda girl whose found her niche in looping. Armed with Squirrel (her guitar), and a voice and words all her own, she serenades, entertains, amuses, and delights audiences all over. As cliche as it may sound, she really does have a style of sound all her own. Something worth listening to.
