Steve says:”It’s hard to believe that a year has passed since we elected a new president. You may have noticed that we try and focus on music and leave politics and religion to others. But I can’t help but feel fortunate to celebrate the fact that Sarah Palin is a private citizen. That was close. So, when asked if our room could be used for a little, one-year anniversary celebration for our many, local Obama volunteers, I said yes. Come out on a First Friday in downtown Carbondale and join in on the event. Something to celebrate, in my book. And now, back to music.”Following the party, Chris Proctor will take the stage at 8:30 p.m. Chris is an acoustic, fingerstyle guitarist who plays a blend of blues, jazz, folk, classical, Celtic and pop instrumental music. He is an amazing player who has graced our stage once before. His guitar work has been compared to Leo Kottke and Michael Hedges, and he will sound amazing in the little room. He is a very talented composer and arranger as well, and his compositions have been published by Mel Bay. His works have also been included on several Windham Hill Records compilation CDs. Being a past U.S. National Fingerstyle Champ is another indication of why Chris is considered one of the “elite solo guitar composers, arrangers and performers of the day.” Come out and be stunned by his playing.
