Most of the music she performs are original tunes and she accompanies herself on banjo or ukulele. Joining her on stage will be Lars Thorson on fiddle, Jacy Anderson on guitar (also students at Berklee) along with bass player Matthew Tonner.

Founded in 1945, the mission of Berklee College of Music is to educate, train, and develop students to excel in music as a career. Student population is just over 4,400 and about 30% if these students are female.  28% of the student population is international, representing 98 countries.

Some names of Berklee alumni that may be familiar to you?   Levon Helm, John Mayer, Branford Marsalis, Bruce Hornsby, Paula Cole, Melissa Etheridge, Roy Hargrove, Gillian Welch, Esperanza Spalding, and Diana Krall.

Laney’s video “Black Coffee” seems appropriate in a post about college life.  We have a few seats available for Friday night’s performance.  Text or call 717-940-9311 to rsvp.  Potluck at 6 pm, Show at 7 pm.  Donations at the door of $15/20.
