Linda ‘shibes’ Schaible is a Texas-based singer-songwriter with a passion for songwriting who took the long road to her first solo record. You might say her journey began back in 1849, when her 3X great-grandfather William Cooper founded the Huthwaite Prize Band in a small village in England. Linda continues an unbroken lineage of performance, including her mother’s own career in Ivy Benson’s all women’s orchestra in the 50’s. Linda’s songs are known for the imagery and poetic language that fill the lines, creating characters and moments that reflect what many of us encounter as we love, live, endure, evolve and celebrate our lives. Her debut solo release, Seco Sessions, is no exception. The project symbolizes the cathartic change that occurs when one step is taken toward a destination.
“When I look back, music has been one of my biggest joys, from sitting in the basement of the Laurel Theater with Gillian Welch & David Rawlings talking about songwriting to sharing the stage as Amelia Earhart Returns with folks like Caroline Aiken, Norman & Nancy Blake, The Nields, Disappear Fear, Guy & Evan Carawan, Tim & Molly O’Brien, Stacey Earle & Mark Stuart, Mindy Smith and Louise Mosrie. I’m glad I found my way back.”
This event launches Linda’s Kickstarter campaign! Anyone who attends and joins the Kickstarter campaign will receive a free gift for signing up. BYOB. Non-alcoholic refreshments and appetizers will be served.
