Supper & Songs: Learning How to Think Small

By

When we first envisioned Supper & Songs, we considered it an exercise in thinking small: cozy homes as venues, a small enough guest list that we could get to know each other throughout the night, and just two artists. We had thirty guests at our April event with Liz Vice and forty in May with Jordy Searcy.

We realized after the May event that, strange as it may seem, we were already thinking too big. Our Head Chef Kelsey Miller, in preparing dinner for these large groups, had to sacrifice some of her home-cooked ideals for the sake of quantity. But we want this to be more than just a house concert plus food.

So we are going to scale this thing back to just fifteen tickets, sit all at one table for a delicious and wholesome supper, and invite you to ask questions between our songs. We’ll have three of these little evenings in August, September, and October to see how they feel.

If you’ll be in the Nashville area August 7th, mark your calendars! The next Supper & Songs event will take place in the Cane Ridge area and tickets are now available, but they will go quick. Click here for more information.

After the May 14th event, The Orchardist’s Janie Townsend wrote about the paradox of loneliness within community. You can read it here on the blog.
