AHWAHNEE — Coolwater Ranch and The Redwoods cheerfully present the inimitable Antsy McClain. Full of humor, wit and kind-hearted tom-foolery, Antsy simply makes the world a better place with his audible grin.
McClain brings his unique blend of music and “humor with heart” to the stage, combining his original songs with a hilarious slide show, including Antsy’s own life observations, social commentary and imaginary sponsors from his home town trailer park of Pine View Heights. As a master storyteller with the likes of PBS, NPR and TEDTalks under his belt, Antsy includes humorous and serious songs in his shows.
Songs such as “One Less Trailer Here in Pine View Heights,” My Baby Whistles When She Walks,” and “The Junk Drawer of Your Heart,” are keenly humorous observations about love and loss, while his more serious songs, like “Field Trip,” “I’m Everyone,” or “Falling in Love in America,” are more akin to personal journal entries written in the act of living. It’s this tightrope walk between humor and heart that makes Antsy McClain a true original.
Antsy will be a Coolwater Ranch on Saturday, Nov. 2, at 7 p.m.
Coolwater Ranch is located at 45680 Forest Ridge Drive, Ahwahnee.
