The husband/wife duo of Derek Webb and Sandra McCracken stopped in St. Louis for a duo of house shows, featuring songs from their latest TN EP, and I was lucky to have the opportunity to take in and shoot the first evening. Between new songs and crowd requests, the pair also took questions from the audience and shared stories ranging from how they first met to just how much Derek loves the new Roots album.
-Nothing like a quiet acoustic house show to make you realize how insanely loud your camera shutter is. My apologies.
-I came in not all that well-versed in Derek’s material (only owning Mockingbird) and had zero experience with Sandra’s work. But with the simplicity of the house show atmosphere showcasing their vocals and musical connection, I think I’ll start diving into some of their musical catalog in the upcoming months.
