Hiroya returns to South Bend for a very special performance at SOUUNDS.
Opening the evening, Chris DuPont returns to the Souundstage. hris DuPont is a Michigan native tunesmith, endlessly reimagining the indie/folk paradigm. With an unmistakable ethereal tenor, diverse guitar work, and a taste for the cinematic, DuPont steers the classic eloquence and lyricism of 70s folk/Americana into the iridescent haze of dream pop.
