KFAI is proud to sponsor a summit of singer-songwriters at the Cedar Cultural Center on Saturday, November 2, at 8:00 pm. Representing the Golden State, Chuck Prophet, stripped down and solo, and from our own fair North Star State, the equally prolific and prodigiously talented Dan Israel.
Chuck Prophet shapes his restless career with inimitable subtle flair: a vivid parade of razor-edged one-liners camouflaged in a slack-jawed drawl, songs about heartbreak and everyman heroism, drenched in twisted lines of rude Telecaster.
Opening is Dan Israel, a veteran singer-songwriter based in Minneapolis. Dan won Song of the Year (for Come to Me) in the 2005 Minnesota Music Awards. He led the folk-duo One Town Horse in Chicago in the late '80s and early '90s, and went on to lead the more electrified folk-rockers Potter's.
