After several successful shows at the Cotuit Center for the Arts, we have teamed up with Janet Lesniak at Wellfleet’s own Preservation Hall on 335 Main Street in Wellfleet, to bring our wonderful out of town guests to our lower Cape Cod fans. We will be at The Wellfleet Preservation Hall on Saturday, November 16th. We are extremely excited about our new venue so I encourage you to attend our new location for our November show and future Sit-A-While shows.
We welcome our re-scheduled guests from last February, when Nemo wreaked havoc with our inaugural Sit-A-While, stranding Sally Barris in The Captain’s House Inn for 4 days. Sally Barris, a Grammy nominated singer-songwriter from Nashville and Jake Armerding reviewed in The Boston Globe as “The most gifted and promising songwriter to emerge from the Boston folk scene in years” ,who now lives in Minneapolis. Tickets are $25.00 general admission,
Join Cape Cod’s own multi-talented singer-songwriter, Kami Lyle, for a series of unique evenings with her favorite singer- songwriters from around the country.
Kami will be hosting each round introducing her fans and friends to wonderful artist-performers in a relaxed Cape Cod living room setting, fake fireplace and all.
Kami, with her house bandmates Jon Evans (Tori Amos’s bass player and most recently toured with Cher) and Tad Price, (Steve Forbert’s 35th Anniversary Tour guitarist) will welcome nationally renowned singer songwriters. Sally Barris is an A-list Nashville songwriter who has had songs covered by such top-level artists as Kathy Mattea, Martina McBride, and Lee Ann Womack. Her song “Let The Wind Chase You”, recorded by Trisha Yearwood and Keith Urban, received a Grammy nomination for vocal collaboration in 2009. While her writing credits mightily impress, fans and peers are most captivated by her bright spirit and expressive mountain soprano. Dirty Linen says “Barris knows how to write lyrics that are as forthright as a stream of clear water and how to support them with melodies that share that quality”.
Singer and songwriter Jake Armerding draws on a wealth of influences in his music — contemporary folk, progressive bluegrass, classic folk-rock of the ’60s, and singer/songwriters of the ’70s and ’80s — but he prefers to classify his music in a simple fashion: good. “We’re going for good,” he says. “Good is our sole criterion.” It promises to be a special intimate evening of shared songs, storytelling and humor.
