In 2012 Dana Halferty returned to her hometown of Des Moines and began working on a new songwriting project. When she went into the studio to record an EP with several other musicians, the songs were fleshed out and Parlours was formed. Now the band has released a full-length album and is heading out on the road to perform a number of live dates, including a stop in Dayton. Halferty spoke with Kaleidoscope host Juliet Fromholt about the evolution of Parlours and what the new year holds for the band.
Parlours will perform at Ghostlight Coffee on October 20th with Kris N.

Mark Rose, Lucas Carpenter and Jon Walker did a traditional singer-songwriter tour last year, but this time decided to try something a little different.

They'll be appearing at Ghostlight Coffee in Dayton's Historic South Park neighborhood on Saturday, July 14 at 8pm.
