They are generously donating their space and staff time to support Ukraine with an incredible line-up of musicians, featuring local guitar legend Dean Magraw & mandolin dynamo Richard Kriehn—a duo that will be performing some pieces by and in honor of the late, great Ukrainian composer-musician Peter Ostroushko.
