Jeffrey Halford & The Healers will provide some 'musical healing' for the holidays at the Lagunitas Brewing Company On Saturday, Dec. 22, at 3 p.m. A recent review in the L.A. Examiner of Jeffrey's Broken Chord album calls it "a musical mélange of Americana/folk, rockabilly, roots rock, blues and pop...a timeless ten-track work that poses political ponderings and raises the roof." Lagunitas Brewing Company is located at 1280 N McDowell Blvd. There’s no cover charge. For info call (707) 769-4495 or visit www.lagunitas.com.
