About this Event

Join us for an evening with Tommi Zender & Steve Dawson, in concert at the Chimera Loft. Doors open at 7:00pm - Music starts at 7:30pm. This is a BYOB event.

About the Musicians: Chicago-based multi-instrumentalist Tommi Zender recently released his first record in 15 years “More Songs About Time” (May 2019). Zender teaches at the Old Town School of Folk Music and privately, as well as doing session & performance work with many Chicago musicians (Phil Angotti, Dag Juhlin, Justin Roberts & more).

Jeff Elbel of Illinois Entertainer calls the new album “a fertile union of sonics and sentiment that forms a satisfying set worthy of repeat play…this album should resonate with music lovers” (8 out of 10).

Sound Opinions co-host Jim DeRogatis says “…a talented craftsman with an appealing wit and energy” and “More Songs About Time is a great record”.

Chicago Folk / Americana singer / songwriter, Steve Dawson, has been called "one of the most underrated songwriters in American music, " who writes, "graceful, poetic songs akin to a volume of great short stories in their precise, exacting wordplay and soulful heartache."

Dawson has released six albums with his long-time band, Dolly Varden, and three solo albums, and has toured all across the USA and Europe. He will release two albums in 2020: "Last Flight Out," with his jazz-folk ensemble, Funeral Bonsai Wedding, featuring the Quartet Parapluie string quartet, and a new solo double album "The Spaces In Between." In addition Dawson teaches songwriting at the legendary Old Town School of Folk Music and co-wrote a book on songwriting and the creative process with Mark Caro called, "Take It To The Bridge: Unlocking The Great Songs Inside You."
