Musicians coming to town – don’t want to miss talent

The Dayton/Cincinnati area has always held great pride in the artists that are attracted to the area, people and venues of this area. There are so many venues available in this region. So, when the Miami University Regional Artist Series announced their 2018-19 season, I wasn’t surprised that they were able to get some great artists. Here is their line-up for this season in Hamilton and Middletown.
