The Blenders are Jonah Howard, Karen Biser, and Erik Glockler; three singers, songwriters and instrumentalists that joined together just over two years ago to pay tribute to the greatest vocal harmony groups in modern history. In their first Readfield Union Meeting House appearance, the Blenders will take you on a trip through the songs of the Eagles, the Beatles, Crosby Stills Nash & Young, America, the Beach Boys, and many more. Also, they will debut new Blenders originals written by each of these talented songwriters. This intimate setting is ideal for both performers and audience to appreciate the power of voices in harmony. We hope you will join us.
