This will be such a fun show !! I will be trading songs in-the-round style with 2 of my favourite Northwest songwriters: Local gems & legends, the ever-delightful & hilariously entertaining Scott Katz along with our good pal, Matt Price, who also manages to be ever-delightful, extraordinarily literate & entertaining in his very own lo-key Matt way ;-) I got to hear some of Matt's new songs at Lizzie's Garden Concert Series last month. They are breath-taking. Join us if you can in the cozy environs of Couth Buzzard Books in Seattle's Greenwood District.
Saturday, November 10, 7pm. No cover but tips/contributions most welcomed.

Community matters. Our nation's political affairs are undergoing change. And now, some things gotta be said. Please join a roster of Seattle singer-songwriters on Friday, August 11 at 7:30 pm at Couth Buzzard at 8210 Greenwood Ave. N. in Seattle for an evening of songs about our life and times. There will be topical songs about the state of our country. And there will be songs celebrating our nation's diversity. This is going to be a political night with heartfelt expressions of both concern and community. All are welcome. None are excluded. But I would expect a certain progressive sensibility to the evening of music. Don't agonize. Organize. Be the resistance. In the spirit of Sixties hootenannies, let's raise our voices in song. Come join your neighbors for live local music that lives in the truth. Hosted by David Guilbault.
