Interview with Steve St. Cyr, producer of Songbird Cafe, a St. Louis-based concert series with singer-songwriters performing their material in a stripped-down, intimate, in-the-round performance space.  Host Nick Garcia and St. Cyr discuss how a business trip to Nashville inspired the creation of Songbird Cafe.  We'll also play a few examples of some performances from the Songbird Cafe which took place at St. Louis Public Radio's home in Grand Center this past December.

Performances:

"Worn Hands" / Jenny Roques

"Chester and the Tarot Card Queen" / John Wendland (w/Andy Ploof)

"Sugar In The Gourd" / Ryan Spearman
