“A very inspired musician who is utterly amazing.  He is so revealing, open and very connected with the music.  It was amazing when Greg performed at our cultural center.  He wanted to be right there in the middle of the people and not up on stage.  The energy in the room was amazing.  The audience was feeding off of Greg and Greg must have been feeding off of us.  It was magical.  I hope you have the opportunity to hear him perform.”  Mikala Norval, Director, Lincoln City Cultural Center.
