“Lanesboro Live! Conversation, Comedy & Cool Jams . . .”


Tue, May 7th, 2013
Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

New this year! The second show of “Lanesboro Live! Conversation, Comedy & Cool Jams . . .” will take place at the St. Mane Theatre on the evening of Sunday, May 26 at 7 p.m. Hosted by Damon Prestemon, the show will feature music by house band The CBB Jazz Combo, comedy, audience participation, and guests including writer/poet Amy Weldon.



The “Lanesboro Live” show is the creation of Lanesboro’s talented keyboardist & vocalist Damon Prestemon, who has a reputation for being on-his-toes onstage. Shaping the show throughout the season, he will build upon its energy—this next show will feature live mics for guests and house band leader Nathan Davidson for spontaneous interaction (David Letterman & Paul Shaffer style). “We’re building something great . . . if you like to laugh, sing, or hear a good story, come on out and join us,” says Damon.



Of note is the magnetic draw of May 26 guest Amy Weldon, associate professor at Luther College (Decorah, IA). “I regularly left her class wanting to skip my next so I could keep doing whatever we had been doing in class,” says one student. A transplanted Alabamian with a PhD from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Amy Weldon has settled into Iowa life, getting her students pumped about local poetry slams and author readings at the Iowa Writers Workshop, teaching adult writing classes at a local arts center, and revising a second novel about a small town in nineteenth-century Iowa. A Southern story-teller in the grand tradition, Amy is a passionate teacher of Southern American literature, British Romanticism, and—primarily—creative writing: fiction, creative non-fiction, and poetry. Amy’s personal essay “The Odd Girls: Flannery O’Connor and Me,” was co-winner of Shenandoah’s Bevel Summers Award and the Carter Prize for the Essay in 2010. An avid biker, seed-saver, and urban gardener, she blogs about sustainability, finance, and other nourishments of life and spirit.







Throughout the year, Damon will welcome a variety of guests onstage. He will talk with authors, poets, comedians, musicians, and more. Upcoming artists include bands Incognito and The May North, and authors Michael Fedo and Greg Brick. The house band will be the talented CBB Jazz Combo—with Nathan Davidson on saxophone, Jerry Barrett on trumpet, Curt Peterson on piano, Roy Cerling on bass and David Br .....
