Holy SH*T…. I’m opening for Loudon Wainright III tomorrow night at The Cedar Cultural Center!
This incredible news has been sinking in slowly since the email I received a couple weeks ago said Loudon’s management had chosen me as his counterpart for a Halloween night show! I almost didn’t believe it… seriously! He’s so funny and writes amazing songs, and I am beyond honored and excited to share the evening and the stage with him.
While I’ve had the privelegde of playing alongside some amazing acts in the past with my former bands (including Eddie Money, Kat Perkins, Candlebox and Smash Mouth), something about this show is positively freaking me out… I’ll be up there alone showcasing MY songs, with just MY voice and MY guitar!!! It’s pretty terrifying, but I know once it’s over I will have a smile that’ll last me through New Years Eve (at least)!
I just want to extend a big giant Thank You to EVERYONE who has made this moment possible for me through your support, love, money, lessons, time, energy and more. There’s too many of you to name, but know that I carry you all forever in my mind, and sing with my whole heart and soul for each one of you at every show.
Here’s the write up for tomorrow’s show in the City Pages…
And the write up in the Star Tribune… (Thanks for sharing this Donnie Doyle!)
I promise you will not regret buying tickets to this show… Loudon will make you laugh, cry, and laugh so hard that you cry… and I hope I can do the same!
Please contact the box office at 612.338.2674 to purchase tickets or head to thecedar.org to buy online.
See you tomorrow!
XOXO’s Love Swanny Rose 💕💕⚘⚘💕💕
