Claudia Schmidt is back again for the fifth year in a row at Couth Buzzard Books for a Pacific Northwest Folklore Society Concert on Sunday, June 9. She loves the intimate, totally-acoustic setting of the Couth where she and the audience can interact at the same level. If you listened to the Prairie Home Companion show in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s you certainly knew Claudia Schmidt, one of Garrison Keillor’s regular performers. She is ubiquitous, a folk, jazz and blues singer, poet, and multi-instrumentalist. Her work is “a quirky and wonderful hodge-podge (her word!) of music, poetry, story, laughter. drama, and celebrating the moment… what you get is a unique look at the world from someone who says what she sees with clarity, humor, and wonder.” Garrison Keillor said “when
Claudia sings a song, it stays sung.” With her infectious energy and joy Claudia will perform on Sunday, June 9, 7:30 pm, at Couth Buzzard Books, 8310 Greenwood Ave N, Seattle. No reservations, come early for a good seat. A $15 donation is requested at the door.
