The 2012 9 Songwriter Series will present a show in the Washington, DC Gibson Guitar Showroom on Wednesday, July 25th. This special show will feature nine singer-songwriters considered among the most elite and talented in the DC area. The show is the second of a monthly residency at the renowned showroom.
Port City Brewing Company and Tito's Vodka—the show sponsors—will be supplying drinks for attendees.
9 Series creator Justin Trawick is pleased to bring his show to the Gibson showroom, a special venue not often open for public shows. “It’s an amazing place, and after growing this series into a national thing, it feels good to do this show. It will be a venue and a night that music fans won’t forget.” Gibson is known worldwide for producing classic models in every major style of fretted instrument, including acoustic and electric guitars, mandolins, and banjos.
The show will also feature Luke Mitchem performing three songs from his unreleased LP—due to drop October 23, 2012. Winter Kissing on Spring is the album title; the work will be the fourth LP in as many years for the prolific singer-songwriter. Mitchem, along with several accomplished musicians, recorded the album at The Great North Sound Society in rural Maine. Luke is also putting the finishing touches on his first novel, titled Tragedy’s Triumph.
Mitchem's soulful, introspective music is a window into this intellectual and talented man. Life’s passions, heartaches dreams and visions vividly come to life through his works—both musical and written. Luke also continues on his solo quest to raise funds for rebuilding Joplin, MO music programs. More information can be found at www.lukemitchem.com.
