If you live in New York, then Laura Cantrell is singing in town.
Laura Cantrell is presenting a monthly Concert series at Sid Gold's Request Room, called States of Country, where she features the songs and sounds from different regions of the US. The opening show, on January 25th, features the music of Tennessee, her home state.
Each of the evenings will feature Laura, a small band and special guests.
Laura says, "Ever since I walked into the jewel box that is Sid Gold's Request Room, I've been meditating on a country show for this special venue. I love the intimacy of the space, the prominence of the piano, and the focus on songs delivered in their elemental form." OMG! Sid's does look amazing, impeccable, like an East Coast Dresden from back in the day, but with maybe a fancier website.
Of the opening show exploring the sounds of Tennessee Laura says, "I've been making this song list my whole life and I can't wait to play it at Sid Gold's."
The First Unmissable Show of the Year? I think so!

Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]
If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
