Local performers Laura Schultz and Colin Scharf will showcase fellow musician Ian Hillmer on the launch of the new series “Songshare: An Evening of Songs and Their Stories with Local Songwriters,” on Thursday, Sept. 19, at the Arts Center of Saint Peter.
“We have a strong local music scene, but few venues that allow close listening and appreciation of the stories behind new songs,” says Schultz, who, together with Scharf, previously hosted house concerts under the series name “The Gold Mine.”
“Our house concert audience basically outgrew our house, and the Arts Center’s gallery is the perfect next venue. Still intimate, but with plenty of seating,” says Scharf. “We’re excited to have Ian as our first guest.
