S.L.A.M. Presents Chris Cunningham & Friends at Live From The Divide Friday, March 31st at 8pm. 100% of the funds from the night will go towards the non-profit S.L.A.M. The Bozeman, MT based organization provides scholarships to community members seeking education in the arts. They also spear head community art installations. Please join us for a great cause and fantastic music!
Like the wide-open spaces of his Montana home, Chris finds inspiration in all directions. “I can never predict where a song will come from or what I’ll write about… the one constant seems to be a sense of revelation and hope; even after a struggle or period of despair.”
Chris is perhaps best known for being one half of the critically acclaimed acoustic-pop duo Storyhill (signed to Red House Record Label) whose career spans 25 years, 15 albums, countless national tours and appearances at major folk festivals and premier venues such as Garrison Keiller’s A Prairie Home Companion and the APHC Cruise (2015 and 2012).
More recently Chris has turned his attention to producing records for other artists and bands at his studio Basecamp Recording, playing solo shows in the region and teaming up with other songwriters and players including local Bozeman favorites Tom Murphy, Mike Parsons, and Russell Smith who all formed around Chris for his episode of the Emmy award winning “11th & Grant with Eric Funk”, produced by Montana PBS and aired in February.
Joining Chris for this event is singer/songwriter Joe Knapp with Chelsea Hunt on fiddle and John Sanders on bass. Tom “mando” Murphy will hit the stage for the second set as well.
