Join us at lunchtime on Wednesday, May 17th for an exciting performance by The Center State.

The performance will take place from 11:30 – 1:30 at  City Market Park, 3rd & Main St.

Part acoustic pop music, part troubadour with a silky lament, and part organic Americana, The Center State perform a confident mix of folk music that is agony filled in places and catchy in others, sometimes within the span of a single song. The trio and sometimes quintet of musicians are as eccentric as the music they play. The quirky Davidson couple plays upright bass and violin, and shares vocals with the songwriter of the group, Jeremy Sharp.

The Center State first full-length album, Close Enough To Miss – self recorded in St. Joseph Missouri with final mix engineer James Felver- is out now on iTunes, Spotify, and most other digital platforms.

This performance is free and open to the public, and is part of the 2017 Art in the Loop Project:  Cue!
