TESS DRUCKENMILLER ~ ~ November 2017

“Singer/Songwriter Sessions at the Bitter End have been a big part of my life since I was 17. My first public performance of original material was through the sessions and since then I’ve been going back every chance I get. They have made Sunday nights at the Bitter End an environment that truly welcomes and encourages every member of the songwriting community to learn from each other’s art.”
