First/Last-Haley Bonar and Daniel Martin Moore

June 17, 2011

On Father’s Day, two folksy singer songwriters stop in Pittsburgh to perform a co-headlining gig at the intimate Club Cafe. Haley is supporting her new album ‘Golder’. Daniel’s latest is ‘In the Cool of the Day’. They were both cool enough to take some time to participate in this edition of First/Last Fridays.

  • Haley Bonar: The Beatles “Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band”.

  • Any thoughts, experiences about Pittsburgh?
  • Haley: My grandfather Dunc McCallum used to play for the Pittsburgh Penguins in the late 1960’s. My mom and her sisters lived there for a while and loved it very much. I think Pittsburgh is the most unique smaller city on the east coast- love those mountains and the architecture.
  • Daniel: I love your town, been there 3 times at this point, and each visit has been fun & educational at the same time. Y’all have great museums & friendly crowds. And some seriously good coffee (Beehive Coffee House – yes please!). We can’t wait to get back to Pittsburgh.

Thanks to both of you. Club Cafe might be THE best venue in Pittsburgh for your show.
