Nov. 19: An Evening with Holcombe Waller -- Songs of Intimacy, Courage and Stunning Virtuosity

Holcombe Waller returns to San Francisco to play a special one-evening engagement at Cyprian's. Starting at 8pm Waller will play two sets with his long-time musical collaborator Ben Landsverk. The concert will focus on brand new songs (Waller is currently writing a new album) as well as old favorites, delivered on a range of instruments including St. Cyprian's concert piano. If you've been looking for "the perfect date" on a Saturday night, you just found it.

Waller's appearance coincides with the release of a new music video for his cover of Buffy Sainte-Marie's song "Qu'Appelle Valley, Saskatchewan," a track from his critically acclaimed 2011 album Into the Dark Unknown. This year he and his album have been lauded by Ann Powers, The New York Times, and PASTE Magazine, among others. His song "Hardliners" was featured in August as a Pick of the Week download card in Starbucks cafes throughout the US and Canada.

Waller is an "SF ex-pat" now living in Portland, Oregon. He has a rich history with San Francisco, having collaborated with Joe Goode Performance Group, performed in Marc Bamuthi Joseph's Left Coast Leaning East Festival at YBCA, and generally kicked around the Mission for seven years until he moved to Portland in 2005.

Cyprian's is excited to welcome and host Holcombe Waller. He was looking for an alternative venue in San Francisco that is intimate with superior sound. We think we're a good match.
