As Autococoon, Caitlin Payne Roberts takes the very personal and makes it public, cramming paragraphs of thought and emotion into simple song structures with fluttering vocal grace. Unlike most touring musicians, the singer-songwriter will be passing through Colorado by way of Greyhound bus tonight, as part of a fundraiser for her participation in the Honduras Accompaniment Project, a non-violent group working for social change.
Roberts is in the midst of this 56-day tour, doing it all on her own by way of bus transportation, as a precursor to her work in Honduras. She'll be joined by locals Robin Walker, Tine and Whal. The show is all-ages, and donations are appreciated.
