By Nick Smith

Musician Lauren Manfrin performs for the first time in public Oct. 20 at Open Mic Night at The House Cafe, 263 E. Lincoln Highway. Manfrin performed folk music covers to a crowd which included her mother. “I wanted to go from playing in my house to performing onstage,” Manfrin said. “Overcoming the fear of it was the hardest part.”
