CMP Community Event -- Field Trip to Sharon Knight Concert at the New Deal Cafe

CMP will be heading out to the New Deal Café in Greenbelt for the Sharon Knight's Neofolk Romantique concert and CD Release Party!

Where: New Deal Cafe, 113 Centerway, Greenbelt, MD

When: Wednesday, August 7th at 7PM

San Francisco songstress Sharon Knight is a Celtic folk singer in leather armbands. She plays octave mandolin as if it were an electric guitar and sings as though she means to summon a storm. Her penchant for combining fierce and gutsy bravado with ethereal beauty, a hearty dose of fantastical lyrics, and an obvious love of storytelling has inspired her own musical style, “Neofolk Romantique”. Although her musical foundations are solidly built on her Celtic heritage, Sharon has never been one to hold fast to tradition, preferring instead to look to her roots for inspiration and then chart her own path.

That path often sounds less Celtic and more “Folktales that ran away with the Faeries at the turn of the century and took cover in an old trunk bound for the circus, which was then commandeered by pirates.” (http://www.sharonknight.net/welcome...)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
