Sky Smeed to perform on-board the KC Streetcar

Join us at lunchtime on Wednesday, June 28th for an engaging performance by Sky Smeed.

The performance will take place from 11:30 – 1:30 on-board the KC Streetcar , starting from the Union Station streetcar stop.

 

Sky Smeed was born and raised outside of Chanute, Kan., in an old, one-room schoolhouse his parents bought and turned into a home in the early 1970s.  Listeners often compare Sky to Gram Parsons, Neil Young and John Prine, though his easy-going demeanor, off-the-cuff banter and transparency link him to contemporaries like Todd Snider and Paul Thorn.  Sky will perform original music written over the past 10 years.  Sky will board the first streetcar to leave Union Station just after 11:30 a.m.  Please join us from there, or from any stop along the streetcar route.

 

This performance is free and open to the public, and is part of the 2017 Art in the Loop Project:  Cue! The project is made possible through the generous support of KC Streetcar; the City of Kansas City, Missouri; the Missouri Arts Council; Arts KC and our corporate sponsors including Stinson Leonard Street, Henderson Engineers, JE Dunn Construction, McCownGordon Construction, Port KC and UMB Financial Corporation.
