Conspiracy of Beards with Misner & Smith and Arann Harris
heads to the North Bay Area one last time before we take the summer off. Please join us on Thursday, May 8th in Petaluma at
Conspiracy of Beards The Mystic Theatre for an evening of high energy harmony and song with the very talented Misner & Smith opening the evening. The show will be hosted and emceed by our local friend, and the hardest working man in folk, Arann Harris of Arann Harris and the Farm Band.
Conspiracy of Beards has traveled to New York City annually for the last 6 years for a show at the Highline Ballroom, and every year Esther Cohen, Leonard Cohen‘s sister, and her friends have come to our performance. Esther is one of the sweetest and most supportive fans of the choir. This year the choir decided to focus on touring the greater Bay Area and to skip the NY trip. Our only regret is not being able to serenade our friend Esther. Here is a short clip of Esther from our documentary project “ A Midnight Choir.”
