LIVE- in the Winery presents Roem Baur
August 23

Join Standing Sun in welcoming back for a THIRD time, Roem Baur- we'll have Fire & Wine wood fired pizza here cooking custom pizzas ($-$$).  ALL AGES SHOW 

Roem Baur is a San Francisco based singer-songwriter with a "stirring vocal range and a passion for his music" (Nina Ragonese, WMATT) that proves to be worthy of the unusual distinction of his epithet (which came to his young, single mother in a dream shortly before he was born).  A classically trained tenor with a four octave range and award-winning singer (MAMA and Elly Awards), Baur has begun to distinguish himself in the San Francisco scene with his unconventional takes on blues, soul and folk music coupled with the wit and energy he brings to his live performances. - See more at:
