Musical variety show will be presented in Danville

DANVILLE—“An Evening of Variety in Music” will be presented as the first show of 2014, sponsored by the Keys, Strings & Other Things live music series on Jan. 25 at Unitarian Universalist Community Church in Danville.

The show will begin at 7 p.m. and will feature musical styles that include folk, Americana, Celtic, rock and original.

Music will be performed by central Indiana musicians that wil include strings such as guitar, mandolins, but also flutes and percussion instruments.

Concert series coordinator Sam Carman says this winter show is the most popular and has the highest attendance compared to the other three shows in spring, summer and fall.

“Winter is the most popular because so many different bands play many different types of music,” he said. “Any time you do a show with local musicians you get a lot of friends and family out.”

The Keys, Strings & Other Things concert series began in 2003 at the church where Carman attends.

“We had concerts that weren’t on a regular basis before 2003, but then we got the name and now always have the concerts at Unitarian Universalist Community Church behind Mayberry Café,” he said.

The winter show is the fundraising show of the season. It supports the series throughout the year.

The other shows usually include traveling musicians from all over the country, some even from other countries.

“I’m amazed at the quality of musicians that we are able to draw in,” Carman said. “If they’re able to do it, they usually come. Some of these people are playing our small venue for less money than what they’re usually making.”

The venue is small, with attendance varying from 25 to 50 people.

“The nice thing about it is the people who come to these shows come for the music,” Carman said. “It’s not like at a bar or restaurant with background music. The people that come to these shows are for the music. The musicians really appreciate that. The church was built in 1884, and when you come into the room, you think that the acoustics are not going to be good, but they’re excellent. All musicians have commented about how good of acoustics they have too.”
