The BLT Coffee House Series, a showcase for singer/songwriters with local ties, continues in February with Pittsburgh songwriter/musician/sax player Brad Yoder. Acknowledged by Pittsburgh Magazine as “ruling the Pittsburgh coffeehouse scene,” Brad’s unique mix of humorous, poetic, political, funky and edgy original songs, covering a musical range from folk to indie rock, has earned him a loyal following. Brad has opened for a diverse range of artists, including Emmylou Harris and Robyn Hitchcock, and has played the second stage for David Gray, Peter Paul & Mary, and Steve Earle/Jackson Browne. He has sold over 7,000 copies of five self-released CDs, including Excellent Trouble, Someday or Never, Used, Talk to Total Strangers, and Best Sunday Heart. Songs from these recordings have been featured on CBS’s “NUMB3RS,” NPR’s “Car Talk,” the ABC Family Network’s “Beautiful People,” “Dawson’s Creek” 5th season DVD, and as part of the Pittsburgh Regional History Center’s 9-11 Memorial Exhibit.
The performance is planned for Saturday, February 24 at Butler Little Theatre, 1 Howard Street, Butler. Doors open at 7 p.m., Show at 7:30. Tickets $10 at the door (no presales)
