Masking is currently required for all Gopherwood patrons, volunteers, artists (when not on stage) and crew. Patrons may lower masks briefly when eating or drinking in the listening room but should otherwise remain masked.
Gopherwood is please to welcome back Robbie Schaefer to our stage.
Robbie Schaefer is a musician, songwriter, and playwright devoted to service through the arts.
He is the guitarist and songwriter for the indie folk band Eddie From Ohio (winners of 7 Wammie Awards; over 150,000 cd’s sold) and has released several solo albums, including his most recent, 2017′s Sounds Like Home: Songs From the Musical, Light Years.
As a solo performer Robbie has shared the stage with Sara Bareilles, Jason Mraz, Josh Groban, Michael McDonald, Keb’ Mo and Emmylou Harris, among others. His performances–intimate, witty and soulful—are little adventures, says writer/artist Jen Lemen . . .
“ . . . Robbie Schaefer lives, loves, creates music and holds space for anyone who’s up for suspending time so we can actually remember what it feels like to be human again. Aliveness is his jam and he helps us find our way by being a regular guy saying the most honest, real thing, whether it’s in a song or an insight that’s just come to him in a flash . . . ”
A kids show at 2:00 p.m. will also be presented. Admission for families will be a new childs hat or pair of mittens/gloves which will be donated to those in need.
