CC Band on tour in Saudi Arabia!

June 23, 2014

Association for American Voices sent us across the world to share the joy of American roots music with the poeple of Saudi Arabia.  This was a TRIP

In a country so different from our own we found common ground at our shows.  Saudis know how to rock- these were some of the wildest shows we've ever played abroad.  We met many warm, open and interested folks who were eager to share their rich culture and to hear about our experience in the country.  I'll let many of our favorite pics tell the story:

well...that's not new york 


A scary immigration form...


Yes please

The Great Abu Seraj band shared their incredible talents and second hand marlboro smoke with us.


A young, female poet shares her work with a local crowd at our show in Dammam...  unexpected and enlightening.
