Live and Free Entertainment on the Three Springs Plaza Main Stage:
1pm – 2:30 pm Meg Hutchison
Acclaimed singer and songwriter Meg Hutchinson began to struggle with a mental health disorder at age 19, but it never ocurred to her to seek help. For years, songwriting was the only way she could express what was happening to her. Since openly accepting her own illness, Meg has found that music is a powerful way to cut through the stigma and reach people about mental health issues. Meg is being flown into Durango from the East Coast for this event by the Jordan Matthew Porco Memorial Foundation.
2:45 – 4:45 pm TBA Performs (formerly Cosmic Accident)
