Workshop & Afterparty also scheduled

October 2, 2014
The Pinedale Fine Arts Council (PFAC) is proud to present Seattle singer/songwriter Sera Cahoone performing live Friday October 10 at 7:00 p.m. in the Pinedale Auditorium. Cahoone will be performing a very special evening of songs and stories with her trio of Seattle musicians.
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. A year later, her skills had become so promising, her mom started taking her to dive bars to sit in with the scruffy old bluesmen. By the time she even picked up a guitar, she had been so shaped by these things – the dynamite, the blues, the woods and the hills – it’s no surprise she went on to earn a reputation as one of the strongest songwriters in Seattle’s ever-vibrant Americana scene.
She moved north in 1998 to open a snowboard/skateboard shop, but quickly found herself backing lo-fi outfit Carissa’s Weird on drums. Since that band split in ‘03, she’s lent her sticks to folks as variant as Carolina rockers Band of Horses, Seattle blues chick Betsy Olson, and singer-songwriter Patrick Park. But in 2006 she struck out on her own with a self-titled debut, which immediately scored praise from local and national tastemakers alike.
In addition to the Oct. 10 performance, PFAC will be presenting a special evening workshop with Sera and her Trio at Rock Rabbit on Thursday Oct. 9th at 7 p.m. The workshop is free, informal and open to the general public. If you’re a guitar player, please bring your instrument to join in! If you’re not a musician, grab a seat and enjoy what will surely be an intimate precursor to the Friday show!
Ticket prices for the Oct. 10 performance are $15 for adults and $7 for students (kids under the age of 5 are free). Tickets are available online at pinedalefinearts.com and are also on sale at Rock Rabbit, The Cowboy Shop, Office Outlet, Isabel Jewelry, The Big Piney Library and at the door the night of the performance ($2 extra). Be sure to save your ticket stub as there will be an official afterparty at Rock Rabbit following the show! Ticket stub or printed copy of online ticket will score you a free drink!
