Bird & Beckett’s Canyon Moonlight Music series closes out 2015 and sets the stage for the Christmas and the new year with Eric Shifrin and the In Crowd.   Eric is a San Francisco institution by now… though the Ellis Act is messing with his act.  We’re harboring him just as long as he can hang on, but catch him now before he splits for Japan or who-knows-where.
