The city recently posted the complete list of concerts at The Walters for the 2018-2019 season, and it’s a pretty great lineup. The Walters, if you didn’t know, is a great concert venue in downtown Hillsboro that offers world-class concerts at a reasonble price.
But there’s no quick way to hear a little bit of every artist on that page, so I thought I’d compile a bunch of embeds here. These are playlists whenever possible, so hit play and lean back. Enjoy!
