Presenting the Kami Lyle Sit-A-While…real songs, real writers, fake fireplace.
We are getting ready for our 4th “Sit-A-While” concert on Friday November 15th at The Cotuit Center for the Arts and Saturday November 16th at The Wellfleet Preservation Hall.
After several successful shows at the Cotuit Center for the Arts, we have teamed up with Janet Lesniak at Wellfleet’s own Preservation Hall on 335 Main Street in Wellfleet, to bring our wonderful out of town guests to our lower Cape Cod fans. We will be at The Wellfleet Preservation Hall on Saturday, November 16th. We are extremely excited about our new venue so I encourage you to attend our new location for our Sit-A-While show.
What is a ‘Sit-A-While’? …It's something between Austin City Limits, Prairie Home Companion, and Ellen. Kami Lyle grew up in Minnesota and loves music, stories, and anything that makes her laugh. Add a little Bluebird, as she lived and played for ten years in Nashville before moving to Cape Cod. Each show features two of her favorite singer songwriters, who you may already love, or maybe you’ve never heard of. Together, the singer-songwriters trade songs, and stories which creates an intimate and special evening. We even have a house band! Check out “The Sip-A-Whiles!” (The fabulous Tad Price and Joey Spampinato, founding member of NRBQ) There are sing-alongs, live commercials to support our sponsors, and sometimes a neighbor even stops by.
Remember last March when a storm called Nemo cancelled the awesome show we had planned? Well Nemo is long gone. And we are bringing our fabulous guests artists BACK! Sally Barris, a Grammy nominated singer-songwriter from Nashville and Jake Armerding reviewed in The Boston Globe as “The most gifted and promising songwriter to emerge from the Boston folk scene in years”,who now lives in Minneapolis.
Sally Barris is an A-list Nashville songwriter who has had songs covered by such top-level artists as Kathy Mattea, Martina McBride, and Lee Ann Womack. Her song “Let The Wind Chase You”, recorded by Trisha Yearwood and Keith Urban, received a Grammy nomination for vocal collaboration in 2009. While her writing credits mightily impress, fans and peers are most captivated by her bright spirit and expressive mountain soprano. Dirty Linen says “Barris knows how to write lyrics that are as forthright as a stream of clear water and how to support them with melodies that share that quality”.
Singer and songwriter Jake Armerding draws on a wealth of influences in his music — contemporary folk, progressive bluegrass, classic folk-rock of the '60s, and singer/songwriters of the '70s and '80s — but he prefers to classify his music in a simple fashion: good. "We're going for good," he says. "Good is our sole criterion." It promises to be a special intimate evening of shared songs, storytelling and humor.
