The Showcase w/ Stephen Patterson featuring Peter Kinsley

Tellus 360 and Music For Everyone are preparing to launch Showcase 2016, season three of the popular singer-songwriter series curated by local songwriter Stephen Patterson.

The 2015 season concluded in October with the sold-out Grand Finale show in which 4 artists from the previous 9 shows each had 15 minutes to convince the audience to give them their vote for Singer-Songwriter of the Year. Mindy Nolt walked away with 2015’s top honors and the $800 Grand Prize.

Throughout the year we will present 9 new headliners who will compete for a spot in the Grand Finale in October. Shows are in The Temple at 7:30 PM, 3rd Wednesday of each month.”

 

Our February featured artist is Peter Kinsley. The opener for this evening is Nick DiSanto.

I have spent all of my musical career in this area playing in bands of one form or another: blues based, rock based and finishing with the Speed Boys, in which I started really writing songs. For the past several years, however, my focus has been on writing songs on and for the acoustic guitar – just my voice and the guitar’s voice.  Generally speaking,  these songs are of a more personal nature than what I wrote in bands, whether actually about me or people I know, or about situations which confront all of us at certain moments in our lives. Each person’s response to the events of their life is unique to them, but I hope that some of what I have been writing strikes a chord with others.
