Mike Hicks, owner of the Leonardtown Grille, has volunteered to provide a special escape for you on the final Sunday of each month.
On Feb. 27, from 4-8 P.M., Mike will host for your listening enjoyment the original Mudcat Trio playing old time bluesy rock n’ roll with a little bit of soul in a country frame of mind. Through the course of the evening, other musician/singers are welcome to join in the jam session. Good food, good friends, and good music will make one great escape for musicians and listeners alike.
