To celebrate 50 years of the most versatile guitar/music shop/performance venue around, a bevy of performers will be getting together to sing the praises of McCabe’s. The list includes Jackson Browne, Richard Thompson, Odetta, David Lindley, Jennifer Warnes, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, The Savoy-Doucet Cajun Band, Peter Rowan, Peter Case, The Ditty Bops, and “special guest stars.” This is a not-to-be-missed event (but hopefully there may be a film or video in the future).
