We are pleased to announce our next Iowa Songwriters Showcase at The Goldfinch Room on Saturday, March 28 at 5pm featuring Central Standard Time!
About the Artists
The warm resonance of an acoustic guitar folds perfectly into so many scenes. Maybe some of those scenes are from your own memory. Central Standard Time’s music evokes those same memories. Though the songs are new, they are steeped in the American folk tradition. They are new songs woven from old threads.
Central Standard Time is an acoustic duo from Iowa City. Matt Hibbard and Charlie Rod met at camp, where their friendship grew strong. From that friendship sprouted a musical collaboration, born of many summer nights singing and playing around a campfire, winter days singing and playing by a fireplace, and countless days and nights in a college dorm room, making music with friends. That collaboration has continued for more than 15 years, spawning five albums of original music and performances throughout the Midwest.
