Mandolin Lessons Raffle

The Old Feed Store Music Series began as Steve Buchholz and Van Glynn sought a Northshore venue where local musicians could have a place to play their music, and audiences could have a relaxed environment to enjoy more of the great musicians in Southeast Louisiana. Harvey Marsolan has been a great partner in the music series hosting the concerts in his feedstore and helping support the artists.
