Ann Arbor Bicycle Touring Society December 7th, 2018 Annual Holiday Potluck 
The Holiday Potluck will feature entertainment by Matt Watroba 
https://www.mattwatroba.net/

Matt Watroba is first and foremost a community singer. He has the knack for picking the perfect songs and stories for the audience in front of him. In concert, at a festival, in a library, in a school, or in the park, you can count on a performance that will get you singing, make you laugh, and leave you feeling a little bit better about the world we live in. Matt also works with award winning performer Rev. Robert Jones, presenting educational programs that celebrate diversity through the roots and branches of American folk music.
