Happy sixth anniversary, Meeting Place! You’ve come a long way, baby… :)
Last Saturday we enjoyed a wonderful anniversary concert performed by the Samuel Evans Band. I had only heard them online prior to that evening, and wow, they were fantastic! They do a great mix of really driven sounds as well as some tender ballads, and lots of interesting takes on popular praise and worship songs, too.
If you missed the concert, make sure to stop out for our next event: Chris Castle in concert July 18th at 7pm! Chris is a folk/Americana singer- songwriter from Peru, Ohio.
Over the past eighteen months, Castle has shared stages with some amazing acts, including: Junior Brown, Chris Hillman (the Byrds), Tommy Ramone (the Ramones), Will Kimbrough, Jonathan Edwards, the Wood Brothers, Richard Shindell, Jeff Black, and the everybodyfields.
He has released two albums, the second of which was recorded in August of 2008 at the home studio of Levon Helm (the Band, Bob Dylan).
Castle has spent the last two years, touring; Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Maine, and New Hampshire extensively. He prefers to play intimate venues such as coffeehouses and house concerts, when possible.
