Patti and Emily Drennan, have made music for three decades. Each having albums of their own, they were excited to make an album together. “A Mother Daughter Christmas” features “nostalgic classics as well as funky gospel tunes.” Selections from this just released album, and more, will entertain visitors at The Depot during the Art Walk from 7 to 9 pm. The album will be available for sale during the evening.
