GBC continues its New Year Resolution of having more music and welcomes Paige Melton and her acoustic guitar to the stage.  Paige has toured all across Virginia and Maryland, strumming for clubs and coffee houses and concert venues throughout the region.  Her voice lends to the sound of a past secret flower-child woodland generation with the grace of a barefooted dancer spinning in a grassy field with a crown of flowers.  So come relax with us to the sounds of Paige Melton.
