Saturday Afternoon Music: Acoustic Amazon

July 17, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Grab a drink at Cedar Ridge Saturday afternoon, and enjoy live music from Acoustic Amazon!

Barb Francisco (aka: The Acoustic Amazon) has been playing guitar and singing professionally in Eastern Iowa in a variety of different rock and folk groups for over 30 years. Her new venture is a solo acoustic show with an eclectic mix of tunes spanning several decades, incorporating some variety with harmony and loop technology to create a fun and diverse show.  You might hear everything from Alanis to the Andrews sisters, Collective Soul, CCR, Fleetwood Mac, Beatles, Melissa Ethridge, Eagles, Pink Floyd, or Foo Fighters to name a few.  To make things even more interesting there is a sprinkling of surprising 80’s techno favorites done in an acoustic style, that her fellow Gen Xers dig. Occasionally, she will coerce her bagpipe playing husband to do a rousing rendition of ‘Scotland the Brave’.

When she’s not playing music, Barb is a professional artist by trade, enjoys gardening, doing home improvements and is waiting eagerly for the July ’21 arrival of her first grandchild
