On April 11th, 2015, the 2nd Saturday Art Night committee will present their second “After 8” event at Stage 3 Theatre. It is called “Songbird Saturday”.
Shirly Sarno, Executive Director of the Sonora Chamber of Commerce and Katie Dunn, Chairperson for this event, were both Wednesday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
“We’re so excited about this night,” said Dunn. “We’re hosting a singer-songwriters’ event that will feature three generations of regional musicians.”
The evening is called “Songbird Saturday,” and is a ticketed event with limited seating.
During the performance six musicians will each share his or her original songs with others accompanying. Then each artist will have a chance to talk a bit about what inspires his or her music.
The guest musicians are Richard Sholer of Coyote Hill, Tim McCaffrey of The Little Fuller Band, Andrew Danté, Sophia and Hanna Lundgren, and Grover Anderson, who will also serve as emcee for the evening.
Tickets are $20 in advance. They are available at Stage 3’s box office, Funky Junk Downtown and at Mountain Bookshop in the Sonora Junction. Any unsold tickets will be available that evening for $25.
Hors d’oeuvres will be served with a No-Host Wine/Beer bar. Plus, there will be a raffle for deluxe gift baskets.
All proceeds go to benefit 2nd Saturday Art Night’s new “Mountain Performers’ Fund,” which is designed to give support to struggling musicians and other performers who participate in Sonora’s Art Nights.
