Three on the green (guitars, not golf)
Sunday, Oct. 21 from 2:30-6 p.m.
It seems like only a few weeks ago that the Guthrie Green first welcomed all to its inviting gardens and outdoor features. Every week since its early September opening, the Guthrie stage has brought exciting artists to play in the open. This week is no exception with songwriter and singer Samantha Crain heading a trio of musicians booked for the afternoon. With a new album set for release Feb. 19, Crain continues to build momentum that began with the 2010 release of her second album You (Understood). Critics and music insiders couldn’t stop talking of her artistic maturity and that alto – instantly recognizable, defiantly different and undeniably special. To hear “Never Going Back,” one of the new songs from the forthcoming Kid Face, check out www.rollingstone.com’s Daily Download.
Did we mention that Crain is from Shawnee? Shannon McNally (country) and Shemekia Copeland (Chicago blues), well-known and established musicians in their own rights, also play Sunday. Look for all three at the green, 111 E. Brady St., in Tulsa’s Brady Arts District. Shows are free. For more, go to www.guthriegreen.com.
