Inda Eaton To Rock Durham Hall On Saturday
For many years indie artist Inda Eaton called Casper her home. She had family here. She learned her music here. She recorded with a pleathora of artists that mentored her as she went from "chick with a guitar" to one of America's premier folk/indy artists. As the years went on Inda had to do what any artists needs to do to grow their art. She moved to a bigger market. New Your City. Now Inda is back with a show up at Casper College and a Documentary on the making of a significant pierce of art. The album is called Go West. Now there is a video of what it took to make Go West. It's called "Behind Go West." The YouTube playlist -- "the story about the story about the story," as Inda puts it -- shows Inda's road-tripping music lifestyle back and forth between New York, Casper and Los Angeles, where band members Curt Mychael and Eve Nelson are based. Shows also were performed in Phoenix, where Rehm-Gerdes lives, and in Smith's hometown, Milwaukee. "Go West" is Inda's seventh independently produced album. Journalist Deirdre Stoelzle has allowed me to copy her story about Inda so you the radio and music fan can appreciate it. Casper storyteller and folk-rocker Inda Eaton will give a concert at Casper College's Durham Hall this Saturday, Feb. 21, with bandmates Jeffrey Smith and B. Rehm-Gerdes flying in for the show and local violin powerhouse Jennifer Cowell rounding out the lineup The ARTCORE show coincides with the release on YouTube of Inda's video playlist, "Behind Go West," about the making of her 2012 Americana Roots Rock album that features the anthem "Casper," a fan-favorite telling of the struggles, love, and heroes of our hometown. The playlist will be live at www.indaeaton.com. Inda recently featured the song as her entry for NPR's Tiny Desk Concert. As with everything Inda, there's the metacognition, an awareness of how and why things come together, which makes for hilarious storytelling that resonates with her audiences. Her education initiative, "ideas to Inspire," and her work in the Natrona County School District's Discover program have given Casper students tools to deal with difficult emotional and cultural issues through music and art.Tickets to Saturday's event are available at the door or at Hill Music, The Shade Tree, Cadillac Cowgirl and Sonic Rainbow and cost $13 for adults; $12 for seniors 60 and older; $7 for students and teachers; and $5 for children 12 and under.
