    Description:

    Ask anyone about the new generation of social justice music-makers and they;ll mention either Heather Mae or Crys Matthews. Mae, a powerhouse performer and earthshaking vocalist, has turned her personal struggle with mental health and body image into an empowering message of self-love, a universal light force that shines for every audience member. Matthews is a powerful lyricist whose songs of compassionate dissent reflect her lived experience as what she lightheartedly calls "the poster-child for intersectionality." These two singer-songwriters have joined forces with JJ Jones (Girlyman) and Joe Stevens (Coyote Grace) for The Singing OUT Tour.

    Opening the evening is singer-songwriter, teacher, and writer Jamie Anderson. Anderson has played her unique original songs in hundreds of venues in four countries including forty-seven US states. Proficient on guitar, ukulele and mandolin, this musician with an expressive soprano is folk without the Birkenstocks, country without the big hair, pop without the meat dress, and jazz without the weird chords. Her eleven recordings include the 2019 release The Truth Appears.

    Tickets $20
