Jul 18, 2012 • Donovan Frankenreiter with special guest Elizabeth Cook. Rayland Baxter to open • 7:30 PM
Musician, singer, songwriter and surfer Donovan Frankenreiter comes east for an intimate appearance at Infinity Hall. Well known for his iconic mustache and quick witted humor, Frankenreiter's most memorable tunes include: "Glow," "Keeping Me Away From You," "Lovely Day," and more. He is a long-time friend of Jack Johnson and his debut self-titled album was released in 2004 on Johnson's Brushfire Records through Universal.
Elizabeth Cook was asked to participate in Strawberry Music Festival’s Sunday morning gospel show. She reluctantly agreed, but by the time she was halfway through her set, she was surprised by how much she was moved by this music. Perhaps she shouldn’t have been; it reconnected her with music that was central to her Florida upbringing. She was moved enough to record a seven song EP of some of her favorite Southern Gospel songs (well, six Gospel songs and a cover of Velvet Underground’s “Jesus”). The EP, titled Gospel Plow, will be released on June 12th, the day before she appears on The Late Show with David Letterman.
Cook and her band, husband Tim Carroll on guitar and Bones Hillman (Midnight Oil) on bass, will be hitting the road this summer, adding a touch of gospel to the proceedings. In addition to all of her duties of writing, recording and touring Cook also hosts “Apron Strings” on SiriusXM’s Outlaw Country, channel 60 that airs Monday – Friday 10 am – 2pm eastern.
Rayland Baxter will open this show.
Ticket Price: $40, $55
