The Bridge Street Inn received some sad news. Grandma Kelsey has canceled her Sept 17 show at the Cambria House.
Dear Bridge Street Inn and Cambria Ale House,
Thank you so much for everything… all your patience with me and setting a show up for me. I put a lot of work into my six week tour, raising money and getting out. I am absolutely heartbroken to have had to cancel literally half of it do to an emergency, but I have no other option. I hope to make up for it in the future.
Grandma Kelsey is the anonym of Boise based singer/songwriter Kelsey Swope. A solitary, wingless creature armed with autoharp, guitar, and song, Grandma Kelsey’s disarming voice blends poetic narratives and structured melodies that draws the hearts of her listeners. It is rare to feel alone in a room full of people, but one can not help feeling singled out by her sincerity. Grandma Kelsey is in the midst of recording her first full length album which is set for release in the Summer of 2012.
Check out her sound http://soundcloud.com/grandma-kelsey/
Rounding out this unique experience Jake, The Old Crow. There are no recordings of Jake, The Old Crow. Grandma describes his sound as traditional folk singer and guitar player.
Brandon Follett, the opening act, delights the audience with a simple strum pattern and sings songs inspired by his nose.
Are you stiff from riding in a car all day, slightly sore from hiking in Big Sur, need a good stretch before pedaling another 70 miles down the 1, or need to mentally prepare for the next chapter of your book? If you answered YES to any of the previous, then your body is going to love YOGA at the Bridge Street Inn. People of every level of yoga and/or no level are welcome to join me Tuesdays and Wednesdays on the volleyball courts for morning yoga. See you there!

Kaitlyn graduated with a BA in Liberal arts from Malone University in 2011, with concentrations in Art, Communications, and Theology. She developed her painting portfolio while at Malone. The theme of her thesis was portraits of buildings, and the mood achieved by various structures. She also spent two years at the Cleveland Institute of Art in the sculpture department making works that focused primarily on form.
Kaitlyn has been apart of two group shows, “Man-Icon” in the summer of 2011 and “5×5” in the fall and winter of 2011. She has since been active with commission and various independent design projects. While interning at the Bridge Street Inn, she designed a postcard and sticker for the hostel’s promotional purposes.
Special thanks to Jackie Krokar for her assistance in the graphic design aspects.
BSI interns Marie Beaupere and Anna Lombardet made this cool stop motion video. One of my favorite personal BSI projects. Thank You!!!!
