 Richard Shindell Friends House Concerts November 12, 2014


Live – AT THE HOUSE – not an outside venue – we are excited to present singer / songwriter Richard Shindell.  Richard lives in Buenos Aires and rarely tours in the United States, but we were lucky enough to get a chance to bring him through, albeit on a Wednesday night.    The chance to be up close and personal with songwriters like Richard is what this series is all about.

We first heard Richard back in 1998 when Whitney fell under his spell as he comprised one third of Cry, Cry, Cry and covered the story of the Montana firefighters caught in a raging fire in Cold Missouri Waters.  Reviewers from LA Weekly to USA Today to the New York Times to the Wall Street Journal have lauded his work.   His ability to tell stories authentically from many points of view remains his strong suit.
