SERA CAHOONE SOLO
“Sera Cahoone is a long way from home. Growing up the daughter of a dynamite salesman in the Colorado foothills, she got her start on the drums at 11, and at 12 her mom was taking her to dive bars to sit in with the scruffy old bluesmen. By the time she picked up a guitar, she had been so shaped by these things the dynamite, the blues, the woods and the hills its no surprise she went on to be one of the strongest songwriters in Seattles ever-vibrant Americana scene. Since migrating to Seattle in 1998, she has played with Carissa’s Wierd,Band of Horses, Betsy Olson, and singer-songwriter Patrick Park. She released her solo debut in 2006, and her widely acclaimed Sub Pop Records debut Only as the Day Is Long in 2008.” Doors open at 7PM Show begins at 8PM All ages permitted, Bar available with proper ID SUPPORT: We serve local beer from Two Beers; local cider from Seattle Cider and Schilling Cider; Washington wine from Wilridge Winery, a rotating cocktail from Sound Spirits Distillery.
