Yes. Steele has released the winter/spring schedule for the Frog Pond at Blue Moon Farm, one of Lower Alabama's finest forums for singer-songwriters and their fans. Offbeat Texan troubadour Friedman, possibly the most famous/infamous artist to have appeared at the outdoor venue near Silverhill, will return on Feb. 7, the Sunday before Fat Tuesday.

The venue is as distinctive as the performers. The Frog Pond itself, is an outdoor stage under a 200 year old Cedar tree on Blue Moon Farm, a property owned by Cathe Steele, who formerly managed the entertainment at Pirates Cove in Josephine, Alabama. Steele, and her songwriter friend Grayson Capps, took inspiration for the Frog Pond house concerts series from the famed "Midnight Rambles" conducted by drummer Levon Helm. As she describes it, the core idea is to bring musicians and serious listeners together in an informal but respectful house concert setting on the farm where the focus is firmly on the music and the community built through artists and listeners. It's a magical place where music is brought back to it's roots in a true listening venue where songwriters and musicians alike come together to "wood shed" and network. The Frog Pond offers each artist the opportunity to play with others that they would not normally have the opportunity to perform with while sharing fan bases & introducing their music to new ears in an incredible listening audience within an intimate venue of true music lovers. We are a not for profit house concert with original music by the performers. All proceeds go to our songwriters.
