McCabe's Guitar Shop: The Singing Out Tour 2019

Tickets here or in-store at McCabe's

McCabe's Guitar Shop is pleased to present Heather Mae & Crys Matthews live in concert. Ask anyone about the new generation of social justice music-makers and they'll mention either Heather Mae or Crys Matthews. Mae, a powerhouse performer and earthshaking vocalist, has turned her personal struggle with mental health and body image into an empowering message of self-love, a universal light force that shines for every audience member. Matthews is a powerful lyricist whose songs of compassionate dissent reflect her lived experience as what she lightheartedly calls "the poster-child for intersectionality". These two singer-songwriters have joined forces with JJ Jones (Girlyman) and Joe Stevens (Coyote Grace) for The Singing OUT Tour. http://www.crysmatthews.com http://www.heathermae.net
