The Noon Hour Concert on Thursday, Aug. 11 will feature acoustic guitarist and singer Paul Lawrence, from 12:15 to 12:45 p.m. at Hubbard United Methodist Church.

Lawrence was born and raised in southern Wisconsin, and has performed his acoustic folk-country-blues from Minneapolis to Taipei. Back in the USA after 12 years in Taiwan, he has new songs to share with English-speaking audiences. His music ranges from folksy ballads to bluesy boot-stompers, with exceptional vocals and finely crafted lyrics.

Lawrence grew up surrounded by music. His mom played the organ at church, and his family was always singing. He was influenced by classical, gospel, blues, country, rock ‘n roll and traditional folk music. Recently, he was moved by the indigenous singers of eastern Taiwan. All of these sounds filter through Lawrence’s dynamic tenor voice.

A freewill offering will be taken.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
