The walls of BFIT will soon get a new paint job — in lighter colors — but they won’t be sporting televisions any time soon.

Secondly, they incorporate traditions from Irish, classical, Swedish, jazz, Klezmer, and Afro-Cuban music to make a sound just their own.

By Andy Kirkaldy



PANTON/WALTHAM — Homeowners in both Panton and Waltham saw modest decreases in their property tax bills when they opened them recently compared to their 2017-2018 bills. Owners of commercial property and second homes in both towns saw essentially level taxes compared to a year ago.

Kosi brings tunes and 'tude to Brandon Music

Posted on August 30, 2018 |
By Addison Independent



Kosi.jpg

Kosi is a New York City based singer-songwriter with nappy hair and jazzy roots. Although she always brings just a little drama to her compositions and interpretations, she’s more than just a drama queen. She’s got piercing eyes and a voice that’s larger than her body. But, small as she is, she won’t fit in a box. She switches styles more quickly than you can follow; from jazz, to rock, then folk, but never more than a few steps away from the blues. Come see this talent at Brandon Music on Saturday, Sept. 1.
