Good Morning Darlings,
I'm very excited about the first concert in the Indy Hostel/QueenBee Autumn Series. If you've never been to a House Concert or a show at the Hostel, you're missing the best way to experience music. Picture sitting on your sofa and having great music performed just a few feet away...that's exactly what it's like, only you're sitting on John's sofa (and he has several)! There will be snacks and assorted beverages.
Amy Speace Trina Hamlin Indy Hostel 4903 Winthrop Ave Winthrop is three blocks east of College Ave you can park next the Hostel right off of 49th Street Tuesday, September 13th 8:00 pm we'll be passing the hat...please give generously
Amy Speace was one of the first people to play at CATH--and sleep on my sofa (you can read about it 10/27/2001 InnerSpeace ). I totally fell in love with her and her music. She's big time now....in the last year she's won numerous songwriting awards, has done a residency in Nashville, and been featured in the Epiphone guitar calendar. Her new CD is coming out next month, I've heard a few tracks and it will be terrific. I got a chance to see her in January at NYC's famed The Bitter End . The Village Club is the same age as I am...and they tout themselves as NYC's oldest rock club. I choose not to dwell on that, bought a tee shirt and enjoyed the music. Amy is touring with her long time drummer, Jagoda. He's a fine musician in his own right...and one of my cat's namesakes.
Having Trina Hamlin join the line-up is icing of the cake! Her terrific voice and powerful presence have gained her a national following since she began playing solo shows on the downtown New York City club scene. She was chosen as one of the "Most Wanted New Artists" at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival and as an alumnus of the Newport Folk Festival. She has performed on The Late Show with Conan O'Brien! I hope to see you next Tuesday. Please e-mail me with any questions. Wheeee! Nora
