Do you like ukulele teenage singing sensations? Ever wonder what it’s like
to record a record on the beach? Wonder what it’s like winning a singing competition? Is it crazy to record a 33 Song record at Chicago’s 31st beach …with your shirt off??
7:00pm Meg Meredith Robinson
Join me this Wednesday, June 26th for interviews and performances from two very talented songwriters. First up is 14 year old Meg Meredith Robinson. You may remember her from a house concert I hosted last year or maybe you have seen her open for some of my shows. She has played the bluebird in Nashville, won plenty of singing competitions and in my opinion has all
the potential to become something bigger than the room. If you have a
child who is into music – this is the young person you’d want them to see
Did I mention that it’s OK to bring the Kiddos?
8:30pm Mike McVady
Ever wonder what it would be like to record a record music with sand in
our toes, shirt off and the sound of the waves crashing? I’ve known
Michael McVady a few years now. He is a highly intelligent Songwriter
with a gigantic batch of original material. Some of it is easy listening,
some of it 70’s pop and lush landscapes of vocal harmonies.
