Sally Rogers and Claudia Schmidt
Sally Rogers is a remarkably accomplished musician, songwriter, storyteller, and educator. Over her career she has recorded more than a dozen albums and has established herself as a preeminent voice in folk music. Noted for her command of guitar and mountain dulcimer, she also takes turns on a variety of instruments including banjo and harmonium. Rogers has toured extensively, performing as well as teaching workshops with adults and children. She has also appeared on A Priairie Home Companion and Mountain Stage as well as a favorite at folk and storytelling festivals. "She is one of our best traditional singers...her voice strong and gorgeous, her feet firmly planted in tradition, her vision urgent and clear." - The Boston Globe.
Claudia Schmidt has been perfecting her craft of performing for almost four decades. It is a quirky and wonderful hodge-podge (her word!) of music, poetry, story, laughter. drama, and celebrating the moment. Work in clubs, theaters, festivals, TV, radio has added depth and dimension, and since she has always included her original work along with very personal versions of the work of others, what you get is a unique look at the world from someone who says what she sees with clarity, humor, and wonder. The San Francisco Bay Guardian said: Schmidt's shows are a lot like falling in love. You never know what's going to happen next, chances are it's going to be wonderful, every moment is burned into your memory and you know you'll never be the same again." More succinctly, Garrison Keiilor said "when Claudia sings a song, it stays sung".
When Claudia and Sally perform together they have a magic that delights listeners. Join us for rollicking good time!
