Local singer-songwriter showcase May 21st at Laughing Ladies Cafe

Mike Buchman sends this info about live music in Shoreline:

On the third Thursday of each month Laughing Ladies hosts the local chapter of Songsalive! in a showcase of local songwriters. Mike Buchman is playing at the May show (5/21, music starts at 7pm) along with organizer Steve Mason and a trio of talented women: Nancy K. Dillon, Eva Tree and Kristy Cameron.

There is a strong singer-songwriter community in the greater Seattle area and the Laughing Lady is an important monthly touchstone. For folks who like their music local, live and original, played on mostly acoustic instruments in an intimate setting, this is the place to be!

The Showcase is presented by the Seattle chapter of Songsalive!, an international organization that supports and nurtures songwriters from the world famous to the beginner.

According to Mike's webpage:

Mike Buchman crafts 100% hand-made songs using all natural ingredients. His tunes are gluten-free and contain no synthetic sugars, but remain sweet and chewy. Mike began his folk music career playing washtub bass and singing with the Gemini Gee Jug Band, the only all-Jewish gospel bluegrass act in Pittsburgh PA in the late 1970s. His music continues to mine the rich veins opened back then: odd perspectives and spiritual questing.
