12:00 pm Merch

Rachel McLaughlin and Merrill Miller met selling merch at the Ravinia Music Festival this past summer.  The two both discovered a mutual love of songwriting, music, and aspirations to pursue music as a career.  This gig is special for them because it’s their first time performing together.  The name Merch comes from the obvious, but also, the letters in their names correspond to the letters in the group’s name.

 

 1:00 pm Will Van Lierop

Will is a singer songwriter from Glenview who uses his guitar, looper, and vocal harmonizer to create a symphony of sounds for your listening pleasure.
