Friday March 23, 2012

About a year ago, Tara-Leigh Cobble hosted the second-ever HubCityMusic.com house concert to an enamored audience. Well, Tara-Leigh loved us as much as we loved her, and we recently received the following email from her:

“I’m making a pass through Texas in late March, and I can’t think of anything I’d rather do than make a return to your living room. Your house concert was my favorite tour show of 2011. I’m not kidding. It was FANTASTIC in every way!”

Now, that’s a compliment of the highest order! What an amazing compliment to our HubCityMusic.com audience and supporters, because Tara-Leigh plays a lot of concerts in a year, in a lot of great places! So it was with great anticipation on her part as well as our audience when Tara-Leigh returned for a special house concert on Friday, March 23rd.

And there was no disappointment, as Tara-Leigh immediately engaged the audience with a combination of banter, stories, interaction, and of course music.

If you haven’t experienced Tara-Leigh’s personal way of interacting with her audience, you need to find a way to see her. Because the stories Tara-Leigh tells are as engaging as her music. She just completed her second book, “Crowded Skies – Letters to Manhattan”, which is a companion to her newest CD, “Morning’s War”, and Tara-Leigh treated us to both excerpts from the book and songs from the CD as she wove together an evening of songs backed by the stories behind the songs.  You can discover both her CDs and her books at her website, www.taraleighcobble.com.

Tara-Leigh Cobble – April 16, 2011

Thanks to all who attended our April 16th house concert featuring Tara-Leigh Cobble!
It was almost a sell-out!  Everyone who atended had a great time, and Tara-Leigh said afterward that this was one of the best house concert audiences that she had ever had.
Tara-Leigh proved herself to be an amazing songwriter, an engaging story-teller, and an incredibly talented singer.  She engaged her audience more intimately than anyone expected, even learning the names of many of the people there by asking questions of audience members throughout the evening.   We laughed, we cried, and we were drawn in to the back-story behind each song.

“God did not call me to be a rock star. He called me to express my salvation through music. And there is a vast difference. He made it very clear to me from the start that if I intended to follow Him, I should never expect more than having to drive 8 hours to play for 10 people who don’t know who I am and who don’t care. They might not buy the CD, and I might have to sleep in my car that night, before I get up and do it all over again the next day.
It was very clear that this was not going to be about me. So I’m trying hard to remember that. I fail miserably at it most of the time.  Sometimes, when I start to think I’m really cool, God allows me to trip and fall flat on my face, so that I’m eye-level with those feet that need washing. It’s humbling. I honestly had to look back at that whole day and say, “Thank You, God, for answering my prayer and for reminding me that it’s not about me.”
