If you listened to the Prairie Home Companion show in the late ’70s and early ’80s you certainly knew Claudia Schmidt, one of Garrison Keillor’s regular performers. She was ubiquitous, a folk, jazz and blues singer, poet, and multi-instrumentalist – she plays guitar, mountain dulcimer, and quirky instruments such as the pianola. Claudia Schmidt has been perfecting her craft of performing for almost four decades. It is a quirky and wonderful hodge-podge (her word!) of music, poetry, story, laughter, drama, and celebrating the moment. She has always included her original work along with very personal versions of the work of others; what you get is a unique look at the world from someone who says what she sees with clarity, humor and wonder. Garrison Keiilor said “when Claudia sings a song, it stays sung.” $15 donation, reservations: email or phone 206-367-0475 (leave a message) (reservations held until 7:15 p.m.)
