On Friday, May 13, 2022, Two Way Street Coffee House Friday Night Concert Series presents Central Standard Time.
Squeaky floorboards, curtains faded with years of sunlight, a dog-eared songbook on the coffee table… An old front porch with a few creaky rocking chairs, a half-full glass of lemonade, lightning bugs flashing and crickets chirping as the summer sun drops below the horizon… A crackling fire holding back the cool air of an autumn evening, friends with faces lit by the fire’s soft glow, songs rising into the night…
The warm resonance of an acoustic guitar folds perfectly into so many scenes. Maybe some of those scenes are from your own memory. Central Standard Time’s music evokes those same memories. Though the songs are new, they are steeped in the American folk tradition. They are new songs woven from old threads.
Central Standard Time is an acoustic duo from Iowa City. Matt Hibbard and Charlie Rod met at camp, where their friendship grew strong. From that friendship sprouted a musical collaboration, born of many summer nights singing and playing around a campfire, winter days singing and playing by a fireplace, and countless days and nights in a college dorm room, making music with friends. That collaboration has continued for more than 15 years, spawning five albums of original music and performances throughout the Midwest.
CST’s music is influenced by Simon & Garfunkel, Peter, Paul & Mary, John Denver, John Prine, The Beatles, Storyhill and others. The music features intertwining acoustic guitars and swirling vocal harmonies. The songs are honest and unpretentious, and listeners are drawn in by their humble sincerity and simplicity.
If you can’t join us in person, you can still tune in virtually to catch the show! Make your donation HERE to Central Standard Time. Visit www.twowaystreet.org for more information.
