Jennifer Louise Taylor and Ken Hall grace the Market stage this Saturday: “Together as Bentwood, Jennifer Louise Taylor and Ken Hall create wonderfully harmonic and beautifully arranged roots music.

Ken Hall is a prominent figure in the Victoria music scene. His magical fingers have graced the sounds of Sunyata, the Stomp Club, Emily Braden Trio, Saffron, Kumbia, and The Sara Merrerios band.” Need tools sharpened?
