EAU CLAIRE - Acoustic guitarist Pamela Means will present three free concerts at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Jan. 30-Feb. 1. Her shows will begin at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday in The Cabin, Davies Center. Refreshments will be sold.

When she was 18 and in the midst of intensive classical guitar studies at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music, Means began performing her own music at The Coffee House, a volunteer-run forum for acoustic music and poetry in Milwaukee. She went on to co-manage the club for five years, honing her skills in performance, songwriting, and her percussive, anything-but-folky guitar style.

In 1994 Means moved from her native Milwaukee to Boston, a national mecca for folk and acoustic music. She arrived with several awards to her credit, including Wisconsin Area Music Industry Awards for Wisconsin Folk Artist of the Year (1995) and Wisconsin Female Vocalist of the Year (1996). In her two years in Boston, Means has founded her own label and released a debut CD titled "Bone Spurs" (Wirl Records). She tours nationally, performing for club, coffeehouse and college audiences.

The Cabin program is sponsored by the University Activities Commission of the UW-Eau Claire Student Senate. A complete semester schedule of Cabin events is available at the Activities and Programs Office, (715) 836-4833.
