Twelve-year-old singer/songwriter Avalon Bridger says her unusual name is based on the mythical tale of King Arthur. Avalon is a magical, idyllic place perhaps a little like the place that Bridger goes to when she writes music.
She admits she's shy and music is a way for her to connect with people. But onstage this young performer is a dynamo in the making, wowing audiences, belting out rock and blues like a performer far beyond her years.
