Edibles, Audibles, Applaudables!

Starting Thursday October 1st, I am partnering with Odd's Cafe on Haywood Road in West Asheville to offer a FREE weekly Americana singer-songwriter showcase, which we're calling, Edibles, Audibles, & Applaudables!

Each week I will be hosting, sharing a song or two as a mini-opening-act, then introducing my guest, and reminding everyone to toss some cold, hard cash into the cookie jar for the artist.

I'll also be reminding everyone to use their dollars to show their appreciation to Odd's for supporting this community event. Odd's serves a dizzying array of baked goodies, fine teas, Counter Culture coffees, sandwiches from Asheville Sandwich Company, and more. 

Odd's is my personal favorite cafe around town, which by design serves as coffee shop, gallery space, meet-up spot,  and community center. It was the first place I thought to approach with the idea of a regular music series, and they've welcomed the project with open arms.

For our opening night, I'm proud to welcome my friend Nate Spencer, with whom I recently shared the stage at Magnetic 375, in a songwriters-in-the-round show which also featured Matt Townsend and Hannah Kaminer. On Oct 1st at Odd's Nate will be joined by Kevin Harvey and yours truly. Nate has been an important part of a songwriter circle that I joined 3 years ago, which has completely reinvigorated my writing. We've done some co-writing, co-produced and played together on our friend Hannah Kaminer's debut CD, and played a handful of small gigs together. He's one of my favorite songwriters anywhere, and I'm going to be sad to see him move to Boston soon - all the more reason why you should come out to see this farewell performance if you're in the Asheville area!

"Edibles, Audibles, and Applaudables at Odd's" will feature original songs by local artists. No covers! (But being lovers of traditional music, we will allow the occasional Public Domain song.) :)

Join us Thursdays at 7pm at Odd's Cafe, 800 Haywood Rd in West Asheville. 

Here's one of Nate's songs from the Magnetic 375 show:
