UPDATE, 3/23:  Unfortunately, due to a family emergency, Jane Godfrey is unable to perform or attend this show.  We will definitely reschedule Jane for a later date!  Linda and Sue will continue in a special format, and we are thinking of Jane with love.

Community. Communion between audience and performers. Inspiration, anticipation, spontaneity; SHARED transcendent moments. Do you miss these things?  I sure do!  The Virtual Dream Café (VDC) attempts to recreate this atmosphere, via Zoom (interactive environment), until live music venues are able to reopen.

March is Women’s Month, and the VDC is presenting women singer/songwriters who write about many subjects, from artist Frida Kahlo to the everyday freedoms we sometimes take for granted.  Willingly we follow our muses into uncharted territories; now we'll share our creations with you!

About the Performers:
  • Linda Marie Smith has been writing songs for over 30 years. Her music is romantic, soulful, earthy, and mystical; her lyrics and melodies weave colorful stories of intriguing people and curious places.  Through her continued development as a singer/songwriter and performer, she discovered that she is most passionate about presenting her work through a multimedia approach. "Mearra~Selkie From The Sea," based upon a Celtic fairytale, premiered nationally on PBS in 2016.  Earlier, she created the critically acclaimed "The Triumph of Artemisia," inspired by the life of revolutionary 17th century Italian artist Artemisia Gentileschi. 

    Linda’s music embraces feminine power, courage and resilience. At present, she is delighted to be working on her third music/multimedia project, which explores the life and paintings of enigmatic artist, Frida Kahlo.  https://lindamsmith.com/ 
     
  • St. Louis singer/songwriter Jane Godfrey writes well-crafted songs that honor the ordinary and reveal the beauty and little truths in everyday life. Jane calls her genre "urban campfire cabaret."  Encompassing an eclectic mix of folk, bluegrass, blues, and beyond, her songs showcase strong melodies and memorable characters, situations, and stories.

    Jane’s two albums, Choose Beauty (2007) and Imagine We Have Wings (2019), receive national airplay. Proudly embracing the moniker “Bravest of Introverted Entertainers,” Jane performs locally and nationally as a solo artist, as half of the duo CatBird (with Sue Fink), and occasionally with her siblings in “The Murphy Family Band.”  https://janegodfreymusic.com/   

  • Chicago-based singer/songwriter Sue Fink enchants audiences with her whimsical perspective on the world, through her compelling songs and charming performances.  Her genre, “urban campfire cabaret” (coined by Jane Godfrey!),  is folk with a hint of jazz, a large dollop of humor, and a drop of sadness for good measure.  Her songs receive airplay locally and nationally, including "The Midnight Special" (WFMT) and "Folk Festival" (Lilli Kuzma, WDCB); most recently, her “Alternate Universe” song was included in Episode 691 of This American Life (NPR).

    Sue performs solo, as CatBird (duo with Jane Godfrey), and as SongSisters (trio with Amy Dixon-Kolar and Patti Shaffner).  As host of the Virtual Dream Café, Sue appears in the round with very talented performers whom she feels everyone should get to know.

About the show format:
  • "In the round" means we each perform a song, one after another.  Performers are inspired by each other's songs, and spontaneity abounds!
  • This show runs from 7:30 to ~8:30 pm (CST), approximately 1 hour... so, likely 3 to 4 rounds.  
  • "Doors open" at 7:15pm, so we can chat before the show begins.  (Zoom is an interactive environment, where performers and audience can see and hear each other!  Audience will be muted during the show, for sound clarity issues, but we can talk before and after the performance.)

  • This will be an intentional show:  we ask you to donate to reserve your seat, and then be present so we can share community.  The show will NOT be recorded for later viewing.  The intent is for us to share the magic together, in real time.
  • Your generous $donation goes directly to these artists.  Your donation also reserves your place in the "Zoom room," so to speak.  We look forward to sharing music, and community, with you!
