Win Tickets to See My Brightest Diamond, Kelli Schaefer & Cataldo at Cathedrals 2
When starting something new, the Field of Dreams question always lingers. If you build it, will they come? As far as baseball fields in Costner movies and the Fremont Abbey’s new Cathedrals concert series, that answer is a resounding yes. Over 500 people attended Cathedrals 1 featuring some seriously goose-bump making sets by Mychal and Melodie of Campfire OK, The Gundersen Family, Grant Olsen of Gold Leaves and Nouela Johnston of People Eating People. People sat on pews and cross legged on pillows and blankets as harmonies bounced off high gothic ceilings in a manner that reverb-pedals only dream of.
So for round two of Cathedrals, the folks at the Fremont Abbey have decided to go even bigger inviting My Brightest Diamond, Kelli Schaefer and Cataldo to perform in this unique setting. My Brightest Diamond (Shara Worden) is perhaps best known for singing back up for Sufjan Stevens and The Decemeberists, but her solo albums of jaunty, twisting operatic pop is perfect for the soaring ceilings and grand stage of St. Mark’s. Portland’s Kelli Schaefer, knows a thing or two about utilizing the natural reverb of a room for maximum impact. And I can’t think of a place I’m more excited to see Cataldo and Eric Anderson’s deft and clever songwriting showcased than this. (If you haven’t spent many afternoons with Prison Boxing yet, you should fix that before Saturday.)
Courtesy of our friends at The Fremont Abbey, we’ve got two pairs of tickets to Cathedrals: 2 for some lucky readers to win. All we ask is you leave a comment with your dream Cathedrals performer below (and use your real email address) and we’ll let the winner’s know by 5pm on Thursday November 3rd. Then we’ll see you on a pew this Saturday.
And if you need any further convincing of how stunning this Saturday is going to be, here are a couple videos from Cathedrals 1.
