Last Thursday, the Casbah in Durham continued its songwriters in the round series. The first installment featured Heather McEntire, Hiss Golden Messenger, Amy Ray and Phil Cook. The second installment featured an equally stellar lineup of Christy Smith, Justin Robinson, Shawn Luby and Katharine Whalen.
Kudos to the Casbah for setting up this series which really takes these performers out of their comfort zone while trading stories and debuting new material. I hope it continues.
Christy Smith (Tender Fruit): "Get Out of the Car"
Justin Robinson: "Space is the Deepest Silence You'll Never Hear"
Shawn Luby (Humble Tripe): "Old Time Friend"
Katharine Whalen: "All of Us"
