Cat's Cradle, Carrboro

Despite the Triangle's coat of ice and snow last Saturday night, Phil Cook and The Guitarheels held their ground, continuing with their scheduled performance at the Cat's Cradle. A surprisingly large crowd braved the elements to hear Cook and his Guitarheels pull from his acclaimed Southland Mission.

The group was loose, using the occasion to give the crowd extended takes and mix in a few covers, too. Cook treats the members of the Guitarheels as more than band members, introducing each with a heartfelt story about what person added to his album and the inspiration they provided. Both James Wallace and Tamisha Waden stepped out front to cover songs by Jim Ford and David Bowie, spotlighting the strength of each artist.

Check clips from the evening's performance below.
