SIGHT AND SOUND: Danny Schmidt to play at Rinkevich Gallery!
The Gallery welcomes Danny Schmidt for an afternoon performance in conjunction the The Telluride Americana Festival. Join us Saturday July 20th at 2pm. The Telluride Americana Festival, now in it's 12th year, showcases brilliant singer-songwriters from the Austin and Nashville area at the historic Sheridan Opera House in downtown Telluride. The Festival this year runs from July 17-20.
Named to the Chicago Tribune’s list of the "50 Most Significant Songwriters in the Last 50 Years", Austin, TX-based singer/songwriter Danny Schmidt has amassed a cult following for his poetic, poignant lyrics. With a craftsmanship and emotional depth drawing comparisons to Leonard Cohen and Townes Van Zandt, and with fantastical narratives reminiscent of Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Salman Rushdie, Schmidt is considered a preeminent writer. Sing Out Magazine proclaimed that: “Schmidt is a force of nature: a blue moon, a hundred-year flood, an avalanche of a singer-songwriter. His songs are a flood of poetry, mythology, folk wisdom, and surprise. He is perhaps the best new songwriter we’ve heard in the last 15 years.”
