Sally Rogers and Claudia Schmidt in Concert August 24!

Thursday, August 24, at 7:00 pm. Tickets are available at the library.

Claudia Schmidt and Sally Rogers are each capable of giving your goosebumps goosebumps. An evening listening to either of them perform is enough to bring you out of your deepest slumps and back into the world of healthy passions and love of life in general. To have these two women together on the same bill is almost overwhelming in so many deeply delightful ways.

“When Claudia Schmidt sings a song, it stays sung.” – Garrison Keillor

“Sterling guitar-banjo-dulcimer work … Better yet, Rogers’ achingly sweet voice imbues her ballads with classic poignance even as it lifts the spirit.” – Washington Post

Claudia Schmidt and Sally Rogers have been at the music for 4 decades, often in solo ventures. Claudia has traveled easily between folk, jazz, and theater, and Sally is well known in the folk world and has created celebrated children’s music as well as writing for community theater. Yet something about their musical chemistry, which first showed itself when they joined each other onstage for the very first time at the North Country Folk Festival in Ironwood, Michigan, 35 years ago, took them to a new and different place.
