Guthrie Theater Minneapolis July 9, 2012
The Guthrie Theater ranks right up there with the best of them all – beautifully designed, intimate yet expansive, high ceilings, great lighting, and great crew…..and it’s red all over inside….and it sits on the banks of The Mississippi among the old mills and factories…. and it’s got an amazing candeleavered ramp which runs out over the river where you can sit and watch it flow. The theater is just part of the incredible innovative urban revitalization taking place downtown.
We played a 90 minute set ending with an encore of “Angels” and “Superman 14”.
In the middle of our set we are now playing a “mini-set” of Hatfield and McCoy songs – featuring some of the material we wrote for the series documentary…..and a special guest, Lillie Costner, who joins us for the first half of our tour. Lillie is a great singer/songwriter with a unique blend of the old and the new, the sweet and the sad, all with a voice that can transport you to another place and time. Lillie will be with us when we play the Opry in Nashville and Sara Beck will join us there and finish off the tour. We’re lucky to have such talented and beautiful women to brighten up the stage.
Thank you everyone who came to the beautiful Guthrie Theater in Downtown Minneapolis (Teddy’s hometown) to see us on a Monday Night. You really made us feel welcome.
Right now we’re on the road to Lansing Michigan to play The Common Ground Music Festival on the 12th…….come see us there.
See You Around …..Sometime
