Terms and Conditions:

**Please note fees include Evanston and Cook County amusement tax.** We want to make sure that all patrons know what to expect when attending events at SPACE. Please note that not all tickets guarantee seats. Seating varies show by show, so please pay attention to the description of the seating level that you select. A "Reserved Table Seat" guarantees one seat at a cabaret table. Every individual in your party needs a ticket in that section in order to sit at your table. Table seats are held until one hour after the start time of the show. Reserved Table Seats and any will-call tickets are non transferable - the name of the person ordering must match the name of the person picking up the tickets. A “GA Limited Seating” ticket guarantees access to the concert, but does not guarantee a seat. Seating is available on a limited, first-come, first-served basis. If seating is absolutely necessary to you, please purchase a Reserved Table Seat. For certain shows, we will have a "GA Seated" section, which guarantees a chair, but no table. Seats for this section are guaranteed until showtime. A “GA Dance Floor” or “Standing Room” ticket is just that. There is absolutely no seating in either of these sections. Please do not purchase a ticket in these sections if you will be unable to stand for the duration of the show. Doors for concerts open one hour before the start time of the show. SPACE reserves the right to change the start time, or to add performers to a lineup. Ticket buyers will be emailed with any major changes. No outside food or drinks are permitted. Pizzas from Union Pizzeria can be brought into the concert. SPACE has a full bar and cocktail service during shows. Flash photography is not permitted in SPACE. This is a listening room, and it is important to us that performers are able to be heard. Patrons talking during quiet shows may be asked to step outside so others can enjoy the show. SPACE is an all-ages venue, but patrons must be 21 to drink alcoholic beverages. No refunds will be given under any circumstances. By continuing with this purchase, you acknowledge that you have read and understood the terms and conditions stated above.

 I understand and accept these terms.

Additional Information

Sally and Claudia are thrilled with the release of their fourth collaboration, their latest CD titled, “We Are Welcomed.”  It's a whole different sonic experience, with their amazing vocals front and center, but surrounded with wonderful textures and rhythm with the lively accompaniment of Duke Levine, Richard Gates and Dave Mattacks, with piano and strings, oboe, reed organ and even a Hammond B3 organ. 

Along with originals by both Claudia and Sally, there are a few choice songs by others such as “Love Call Me Home,” a beautiful, recent song by Peggy Seeger; “Star Girls” a Neal Hagberg song which addresses the plight of women and girls around the world; Jean Ritchie's “Cool of the Day” and Sandy Denny's beautiful “Who Knows Where the Time Goes.”

“We Are Welcomed” celebrates friendship, tenacity, and hope (the title song, “Jamaica's Tree,” and the closing song, “Quiet Hills.”), social justice (“Willful Ignorance” and “Still On the Bridge”) and, as always, the power of love and music. It is an album from two women still deep in their art and growing creatively, a truly ageless activity. “We are Welcomed” is high-energy, fun, intense, whimsical, and full of catchy tunes. Two artists at the height of their powers… a triumph!!

Claudia Schmidt and Sally Rogers have been at the music for 4 decades, often in solo ventures. Claudia has traveled easily between folk, jazz and theater, and Sally is well known in the folk world and has created celebrated children’s music as well as writing for community theater. Yet something about their musical chemistry, which first showed itself when they joined each other onstage for the very first time at the North Country Folk Festival in Ironwood, Michigan, 35 years ago, took them to
a new and different place.

They frequently toured together in the 80's – before there were Indigo Girls! – and recorded two albums to great acclaim in the folk community, “Closing the Distance” (Flying Fish Records) and “While We Live” (Red House Records). Then Claudia moved to Beaver Island, Michigan, to run a B&B and a restaurant with her husband and Sally moved to Connecticut, got married, and became a mother and teacher; yet they kept their deep musical connection going and managed to do a few concerts each year, learning and writing new songs to add to the old favorites.

Four years ago, with Claudia back on the mainland and Sally's girls are grown up, they made their first CD in 22 years – “Evidence of Happiness,” with sparse accompaniment and focusing on the synergy of Claudia's and Sally's amazing vocals – which has led to more touring and writing and delving ever deeper into that wonderful heart-opening harmony showcased in their new CD, “We Are Welcomed.”
