Coffeehouse Concert: Freedy Johnston
On Saturday, February 9, at 7 p.m., DCA will present acclaimed singer-songwriter Freedy Johnston in a mainstage Coffeehouse Concert. The Madison-and New York City-based Johnston is often described as “a songwriter's songwriter.” Packing a punch that is both intellectual and visceral, Johnston’s songs have been praised by critics and fans alike. In the early 1990s, Rolling Stone and Spin hailed his album Can You Fly as a masterpiece. Robert Christgau called it “a perfect album.” Its success led to a major label deal with Elektra, for whom Johnston released This Perfect World in 1994.
Refreshments from Base Camp Coffee Shop will be available for purchase at the concert, which is sponsored by the Cordon Family Foundation.
Tickets for Johnston’s concert range from $16-18. Advance reservations are recommended and can be made through the DCA box office, located on Highway 42 in Fish Creek. The box office is open Monday-Friday, 12-5 p.m. Tickets can be purchased in person, on the phone at (920) 868-2728, or online at www.dcauditorium.org.
