Chris Nauman
Aug. 1 Featured Act

Chris Nauman is an “award winning” singer/songwriter who pumps passion into his performances with his dynamic guitar work and expressive vocals. He commands the stage with a keen sense of honesty and freshness.

Drawing inspiration from Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen and Pete Seeger, among many others, Nauman channels his mid Western sensibilities into a spirited blend of folk rock.   Sometimes caressing, sometimes kinetic, his music is always sure to please.
