Goose in the Round: Friday

Fri 6 PM | Goose in the Round, Mainstage

Terry Gonda and Kirsti Reeve (hosts)

Now a festival tradition, this year GITR will kick off the evening mainstage program. We again present a showcase of some of the finest singer-songwriters the Goose has to offer this year in an in-the-round setting. Two different artists hosted by Terry Gonda and Kirsti Reeve will take turns sharing their songs and the stories behind them. Who knows what Wild Goose magic will happen when these talented performers take the stage together as community?

Terry and Kirsti have been making music together since they met in 1994. The Wild Goose has become their home over the years, and they are responsible for the music programming and stage management. They are honored to host Goose in the Round and highlight the singer-songwriters of the Goose.
