About the Event

Named to the Chicago Tribune’s list of the "50 Most Significant Songwriters in the Last 50 Years",  Austin, TX-based singer/songwriter Danny Schmidt has amassed a cult  following for his poetic, poignant lyrics. With a craftsmanship and  emotional depth drawing comparisons to Leonard Cohen and Townes Van  Zandt, and with fantastical narratives reminiscent of Gabriel Garcia  Marquez and Salman Rushdie, Schmidt is considered a preeminent writer.

Opening the show will be Carrie Elkin.  Carrie is one of those rare artists with a tidal wave singing  voice, and a stage whisper writing voice that brings you to the edge of  your seat, emotionally. Like Patty Griffin or Brandi Carlile, she  straddles the Americana, Folk, and Indie Rock worlds, where meaningful  songs meet the fierce-yet- fragile voices of powerful women. Like these  other seminal artists, Elkin has the gift of projecting very personal  intimate moments into transcendent universal experiences that move us  all.
