SongStage: A Live Music Series and our Distinguished Artist Alumni List

Catherine Cummings Theatre

Live Space Entertainment and Cazenovia College are excited to present a very special and unique live music series at the Catherine Cummings Theater on Linklaen Street in beautiful downtown Cazenovia, NY entitled "SongStage".

The series presents national touring acts with loyal followings from decades of touring with the occasional radio hit, or TV/film soundtrack contribution. And frequently, the best talent in Central New York is featured in the coveted "opening slot". Audiences can expect great music of all different styles and genres, with some surprises.

"Although we are starting with some acoustic shows, stay tuned, we will be producing some eclectic concerts, from R&B to children's programs and everything in between" says Tom Honan, Executive Producer of Live Space Entertainment. "The series will have a community feel to them," Honan says, "in fact we have partnered with Caz Cares, a local food pantry. We are encouraging fans to bring canned goods and non-perishable foods to all of the shows." "The SongStage series will be a wonderful opportunity for Catherine Cummings Theatre to be a major venue for national, regional and local artists," says Colleen Prossner, theatre director. "We see great benefits for Cazenovia College and for Central New York," she said. The series kicked off on Saturday, March 12th with Paul Barrere and Fred Tackett the two guitarists from Little Feat ("Dixie Chicken") and local roots'n'rags guitarist Colin Aberdeen. The following week on March 18th, SongStage presented John Ford Coley of the legendary '70s duo England Dan and John Ford Coley ("I'd really Love to See You Tonight," "Nights are Forever Without You") with special guest Paul Davie. On May 20th, SongStage presented the ever popular Livingston Taylor, with local songsmith Dusty Pas'cal as the the opener. June 2011 brought in one of The Faces ("Stay With Me", "I'm Losing You") legendary rock keyboardist Ian McLagan with his duo partner (and Syracuse 'native face') Jon Notarthomas.

About: Paul Barrere and Fred Tackett, the two guitarists form the legendary Little Feat can't seem to get enough of each other. They first played together on the album "Dixie Chicken" some twenty-five years ago and since then have recorded and toured together or individually with Little Feat and many others. A short list of artists they have worked with include Bonnie Raitt, Bob Dylan, Taj Mahal, Tom Waits, Dionne Farris, and the Wallflowers.
When they are not touring with Feat, they like to unplug and share a laid back evening of Little Feat hits and much more.

Leon Redbone

If there is one common element to Redbone's diverse music it's his mastery of his acoustic guitar. It's easy to get lost in his stage exploits (which often gravitate between vaudeville and performance art) and overlook what a truly fine player he is-fingerpicking with a ragtime bounce or jumping between chords with the grace of a card shark, making it look so effortless it can often be deceiving.
