Mary Elizabeth Lawson and Myles Jasnowski of Mesonjinx delivered an intimate and storytelling performance for KZUM’s Soup & Songs event on Sunday at Ferguson House. The audience at the event contributed lyrics during the show, and helped Mary+Myles freestyle to create a song. Lawson and Myles shared the writing processes for their most popular songs. By using this venue with historic significance, KZUM created an atmosphere that was relaxed.
Lawson and Jasnowski performed in the Ferguson’s grand space in front of the marble fireplace decorated with flower and red drapery. Jasnowski sang and played his electric acoustic guitar. Lawson shared that she wrote her most popular song, “Without You”, almost three years ago,and explained that she is not that person she was when she wrote it. The duo even shared new music they were still working on, and assured they will have more music to come.
Soup and Song’s was the brainchild KZUM’s Radio Host and Director of Development, Shannon Claire. Her goal was to create a different environment for Lincoln’s music scene by using the local resources that the audience would enjoy, as well as a venue within Lincoln that is historical.
“I really wanted to vitalize the relationship that KZUM and The Ferguson House,” Claire says. “So my goal was to bring something to the table that hasn’t been done, and serve people delicious food while they just enjoy the music.”
Soup & Songs continues on the last Sunday of every month through March. The next few performances include Josh Hoyer, Jackie Allen, Edem Soul Music, Evan Bartels, and Root Marm Chicken Farm Jug Band. Find more information here.
