Miranda has been performing at a number of local farmers' markets and farms in support of our local agricultural community since September 2013. She can belt out Janis Joplin's "Bobby McGee," Patsy Cline's "Crazy" and other cover songs as well as her own compositions. "Locally Grown," Miranda is an accomplished guitarist as well as excellent vocalist.
Matt Smith and Debby Greene will liven up our market Uptown at the Wine Bin with their light rock and pop music. Matt and Debby have been performing at our area's farmers' markets since October 2013 to raise funds for the local Howard County Food Bank. So far, they have raised just under $400 in tips, all of which they have given to the Howard County Food Bank as a monetary donation. They are nearly half way to their goal of $1,000 by the years' end. Come Buy Local, Listen to Matt & Debby's Live performance, and support the Howard County Food Bank through tipping them big time!
