Description

An Evening of Music and Comedy to benefit the Saint Anne Institute Alumni Fund

This show kicks off with music by singer-songwriter Courtney Blackwell, accompanied by local veteran musician Drew McCabe. The two offer a soothing blend of balmy melodies and heartfelt lyrics that have made them a coffeehouse and festival favorite.

The second set features Courtney’s older brother, Chris Blackwell, a regular in the local music scene. Whether performing his own first-rate songs or reverent covers of honky-tonk staples, Chris’s spirited rustic charm and a distinct roots-folk vibe will get your feet stomping.

Then Las Vegas-based comedian Linda Lou—and mother of the Blackwell siblings—takes the stage. Despite her conviction that “some memories are better left repressed,” she delivers hilarious reflections spanning her early years in Albany to the latest chapter of her life as a free spirit in Sin City.

In addition to performing on various Las Vegas stages, Albany native Linda Lou is the author of Amazon bestseller Bastard Husband: A Love Story, an entertaining account of her experience starting over in Sin City after a mid-life divorce. She also has had numerous personal essays published in anthologies including Chicken Soup for the Soul.
