Claudia Schmidt has been perfecting her craft of performing for almost four decades. It is a quirky and wonderful hodge-podge (her word!) of music, poetry, story, laughter. drama, and celebrating the moment. Work in clubs, theaters, festivals, TV, radio has added depth and dimension, and since she has always included her original work along with very personal versions of the work of others, what you get is a unique look at the world from someone who says what she sees with clarity, humor, and wonder. The San Francisco Bay Guardian said: Schmidt's shows are a lot like falling in love. You never know what's going to happen next, chances are it's going to be wonderful, every moment is burned into your memory and you know you'll never be the same again." More succinctly, Garrison Keillor said "when Claudia sings a song, it stays sung"

Laurel Canyon is a neighborhood in the Hollywood Hills region of the Santa Monica Mountains. The creative flowering that grew out of this section of Los Angeles in the 1960s and early 1970s produced some of the greatest music of that era, changing the culture and the lives of some of rock and roll’s most gifted artists. Imagine living down the road from Joni Mitchel or just upstairs from Jackson Browne. Imagine if all you had to do on a weekend night was walk down the street and you were at someone’s house and they had a guitar and a piano … and their name was Neil Young, or Graham Nash, or Glen Frey. Imagine if your neighbors were musicians who were starting bands called The Doors, The Byrds, Crosby Stills and Nash, The Monkees, The Eagles, and The Mamas and Papas.
Veteran singers Mary Jane Alm, Boyd Lee, Aimée Lee, Paul Frantzich and Tim Frantzich, along with a stellar lineup of musicians will walk you through the streets of this magical place and time. You will hear the stories of some of your favorite musicians. Your memory will be flooded with songs from The Association, The Turtles, Linda Ronstadt, Carole King, James Taylor, Buffalo Springfield, Brian Wilson, The Jefferson Airplane, and more … all who resided in this beautiful bubble of creativity, friendship, sunshine, and music.
This show brings together what happened in this magical place when it was just the right time, just the right space, with just the right musicians … in a very special moment in time that created the songs of Laurel Canyon.

After Crosby, Stills and Nash made their debut at Woodstock, they were joined by the already-becoming-legendary Neil Young to create the landmark 1970 album "Deja Vu". With hits like "Carry On", "Our House" and "Teach Your Children" to counter-culture anthems like "Almost Cut My Hair" to the haunting melody of "Helpless", it's a truly unique piece of rock'n roll history.
The Collective Unconscious, with their 22 years as a vocal trio and their groove-based rhythm section, fit this album like a glove. With precision and soul, CU plays the album front to back in front of your eyes, letting you experience the album in an exciting new way, all while staying true to the album’s sound and style.
Join Jeff Engholm, Muggsy Lauer, Nathan Nesje, George Maurer, Scott Chabot, and Erin Vork for the epic journey of Crosby Stills Nash and Young's "Deja Vu" all over again!
