So... What's a "double bill?"
It's two for the price of one, it's twice the proverbial fun! (That rhymed! Hee Hee!)
We are presenting the two artists in this format because some of you know one of the artists but none of you know the other. Besides! We know the evening will be full of good laughs and great musical colaboration. Come and find out!

About Beth Wood....
Beth Wood began her musical journey in Lubbock, a high plains Texas town with a uniquely rich musical heritage that includes Buddy Holly, Natalie and Lloyd Maines, Mac Davis, and Joe Ely to name a few. When she wasn’t dodging tornados and dust storms, Beth was studying classical piano, violin, harp, and voice and contemplating the greatness of her Dad’s Willie Nelson records.
With grandiose dreams of becoming a musician, a baker, or a cowgirl, Beth left west Texas to study voice and piano at Brevard College in North Carolina. A detour from her classical studies led her to Austin, where she picked up a degree in literature and a guitar. Beth began writing her own songs and quickly discovered a feeling of musical freedom that she has been hooked on ever since. Sixteen years, thousands of shows, nine albums, three cars, and numerous awards later, Beth has never looked back. Beth's exceptional musicianship, crafty songwriting, and engaging, energetic stage presence have been winning over audiences from coast to coast.

Coffee With Conscience Concert Series
Ahrre Maros is the owner of Ahrre's Coffee Roastery in Westfield & the Fair Trade Coffee Company on line. He has been presenting live musical events since 1992, when he first opened the Common Ground Cafe in Summit.
