Tony Memmel was born missing his left forearm. He taught himself to play the guitar, piano and harmonica. Memmel's story is about more than his handicap. He has accomplished more in his life with one hand than many have with two. He performed at the Louisiana Superdome for the National Youth Gathering in July, was the Boston Globe "Critic's Pick" in 2011 and was called "Amazing!" by NBC'c "The Morning Blend."
Free of charge and open to the public, the music takes place in the Prairie Berry Winery Events room. This event is part of Prairie Berry's month-long Pumpkin Bog Fest, featuring family-friendly activities every weekend to celebrate fall and the release of Pumpkin Bog, their seasonal pumpkin-cranberry wine.
