The Cedar Cultural Center

Ever since I saw my first show at The Cedar Cultural Center (which I believe was Greg Brown), I’ve wanted to perform there. It’s just about the most perfect venue for my style of music. The sound is excellent. It’s spacious, yet intimate. Love it.

And last night I got to perform there!

It was the Prairie Fire Lady Choir’s end of season celebration. They performed along with Roe Family Singers, Aby Wolf, and the Como Avenue Jug Band…and me!

I sang a few songs with the choir and then did a four song set of my own.

It was a seated show, which means that all in attendance were seated and watching and listening. I don’t think I’ve ever had that before. At bars, people tend to mill about, chat, etc and that’s just fine. I want people to have a good time. But having people just sit and listen while you perform is pretty amazing and a very cool experience.

Set list for The Cedar Cultural Center 11-27-12
