On Sunday Sept. 30, 2012 @ 7 pm Manifest Destiny features Jeff Harshbarger opening for Denver Broncos UK.
“I am delighted to perform within Renee Cinderhouse’s Manifest Destiny. We share a vision of both the purpose and fallacies of folklore and memory. Inspired by the music of our nation’s earliest days, I hope to further explore the subtleties of our culture’s aural traditions, both real and imagined.” —Jeff Harshbarger
