And now for something COMPLETELY different! From the a capella submissions of middle and high school students, ilyAIMY has arranged the social justice songs of 6 young finalists in the Chords of Courage Songwriting Competition. Expect everything from reggae to gospel/funk to indie to country out of your typically alt-folk friends, ilyAIMY. We'll pull out all the stops, and some instruments we don't usually bring to gigs ... hmmm.
In prior years, Heather coached the early writing stages of the contest, and last year arranged and performed (with Kristen on cello and rob videoing/mixing) what turned out to be the winning entry, Nadia by Gabriela Cuddy: https://youtu.be/VvafDKPGvg0
So this year, the whole band is similarly "STEPPING UP." We can't wait for this pleasantly challenging honor of ushering the next generation of meaningful songwriters forward. The show is free, but attendees must register in advance at this link:
