CLAUDIA SCHMIDT
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 Keillor said “when Claudia sings a song, it stays sung.” Listen to her music. $15 donation, no reservations, come early for a good seat.  Couth Buzzard Books Espresso Buono Cafe, 8310 Greenwood Ave N, Seattle, 436-2960

DEL REY
Del Rey started playing guitar when she was four years old. At thirteen, she was immersed in the world of folk music, via the San Diego Folk Festival. She has tried to get a whole band onto her solo instrument from the beginning. This gives her music an interesting complexity, especially when applied to the ukulele. Rags, blues and tunes of the early 20th century are her specialty, even as she writes new music to add to the tradition. Del Rey also has fashion sense that would make Minnie Pearl smile. $10 donation. 7:30-9:30pm, Couth Buzzard Books Espresso Buono Cafe, 8310 Greenwood Ave,Seattle, 436-2960
