One of the best songwriters in the English language …an enchanting and riveting performer. –Chicago Magazine
When Michael performed at the Dome back in ’08, we had an audience of 90. Surely be nice to have a good turn-out this go-round too. Take heed of the above quote! Give yourself (and companions) a holiday gift and come experience a wonderful and entertaining afternoon of music from a very “enchanting and riveting” performer. (Plus there may be a surprise musical guest or two )


PLEASE SAVE THE DATE: On Sunday January 25, 2015 at 3 pm, we’ll be featuring CLAUDIA SCHMIDT. Claudia performed sold-out concerts at the Craftsman House Gallery in St Pete in 2012 and in March of this year. We’re happy that she decided to visit us on this side of the Bay. http://www.claudiaschmidt.com/

Claudia Schmidt; Sunday, January 25 at 3:00pm!CSgallery18

COST: $15 ADVANCED    $20 DOOR

Claudia Schmidt is a powerful vocalist and adventurous artist, who combines lively folk, jazz and blues with rich poetry and playful humor.
Hailing from Michigan, she knew at a young age that she was destined to be a singer. Performing in numerous choirs throughout her youth, Claudia soon pursued a professional career while in Chicago, leading her to Wisconsin and Minnesota, where she was a frequent guest on the early days of A Prairie Home Companion. More than thirty years and 16 albums later, Claudia continues to perform on the road to her loyal legions of fans across the country. Mixing folk, jazz, traditional ballads and breathtaking originals, there’s not a style she can’t master. Claudia ‘s incredible voice and charismatic stage presence makes her a marvel in concert.
In the middle of her career Claudia took a detour from her music and opened a bed and breakfast with her husband on Beaver Island in the middle of Lake Michigan. But Claudia always kept music as a close companion, leaving for short tours during this period. Eventually the muse struck her again and Claudia returned to recording and touring fulltime.
Claudia has recorded 16 of her own albums, including five on Red House Records and two with singer-songwriter Sally Rogers. She was also featured on Gales of November, a musical theater piece written by Eric Peltoniemi featuring Prudence Johnson, Ruth MacKenzie, Peter Ostroushko, Dan Chouinard and Jeff Wilkomm.
With an infectious energy and joy, Claudia continues to tour the country, delighting audiences with her spectacular vocals and instrumental prowess. Now living in Minneapolis, she releases Bend in the River: Collected Songs. A fun, wide-ranging collection of her finest Red House material, it is the album that fans have been waiting for.
