We’ll return to our regular third Thursday schedule this October with the hypnotically captivating Erin Ivey. On the 15th, Ivey, who was runner-up in the 2015 Austin music awards for both Female Vocal Performance and Album of the Year (Whisper of the Moon), will play Unplugged on The Front Porch as her first show back on the Austin scene after a bit of a hiatus. Performing for the first time ever with her new trio, guitarist Chuck Pinnell and bassist Kris Afflerbaugh, Ivey will be bringing her A-Game to the spectacular All Saints’ Sanctuary, and we can’t wait to see the “queen of Austin singer songwriters” reclaim her throne on our stage.
Providing regular opportunities for Austin folks to engage with exceptional musicians in an acoustically exquisite venue– the sanctuary at All Saints’ Episcopal Church– Unplugged on The Front Porch invites all devoted listeners to gather in one spot on a monthly basis to venerate our city’s best musical storytellers. In just two short hours, our listening experience reaches into the hearts and minds of these musicians as we explore with them not only their art but also their life experiences and opinions in our intimate gathering characterized by both music and conversation.
Each edition of Unplugged on The Front Porch features an hour an a half of music divided into two sets, a fifteen-minute interview with the artist, and a fifteen-minute intermission. Every concert is taped, and we ask for a donation of $15 at the door that goes directly toward paying our crew and our artists the living wages they deserve.
Unplugged on The Front Porch is generated and sustained by two local nonprofits– The Live Music Capital Foundation and The Front Porch– who decided to look for ways to make listening in our community more intentional.
