Saturday, February 16th, 2008 The Cantrells

The last time Al and Emily Cantrell played here at the cabin, they commented that the cabin is by far the smallest venue that they play, but it is also among their favorites. That’s a high compliment from a duo who’ve graced the silver screen, played festivals across the nation and around the world, and taught at workshops and music camps alongside legendary musical artists. Emily has a fantastic voice, and plays a mean swing rhythm guitar that conjurs visions of backing Django Reinhardt. Her voice and guitar are perfectly complimented by Al on some fantastic fiddle playing and very tasteful mandolin. We’re really lucky that they live just a few hours away and are excited to share an evening with us here in Evansville.
