BettySoo celebrates release of "Insomnia Waking Dream"

By Paul T. Mueller – Texas singer-songwriter BettySoo’s July 7 show at McGonigel’s Mucky Duck in Houston celebrated the release of Insomnia Waking Dream, a CD-only collection of 15 demos recorded over more than a decade and assembled with the help of fellow singer-songwriter Curtis McMurtry. BettySoo was the sole performer on the album, but for this show and others on her current tour, she was accompanied by guitarist Jon Sanchez and bassist Gary Calhoun James, both of whom provided excellent support. BettySoo performed the entire album, including three songs solo, showcasing her beautiful vocals and skillful guitar playing.

The show was livestreamed, but in-person audiences at the Duck are usually rewarded with a little extra after the end of the main set. On this night, it was a lovely rendition of Guy Clark’s “Dublin Blues.”
