Hello Live Music Fans:
We’re kicking 2016 off right with 2 shows this week at 2 different music venues right here in the Triangle.
We’ve started a Tuesday Night Acoustic Series at Plan B Music Club in Durham. This Tuesday, January 12th we will host internationally touring musicians Genna and Jesse. Show starts at 8pm. There is NO ADMISSION at the door (although they would appreciate any tips if you enjoy the show).
Genna & Jesse are defined by a unique alchemy born of the quirky chemistry, intricate vocal harmonies and ardent storytelling which infuse their songwriting and vibrant performances. With whispers (and sometimes roars) of folk, country, jazz, blues, art song, and popular music from the ‘60s and ‘70s, their self-chosen genre “acoustic-soul” doesn’t quite encompass what they conjure up in their joyful live shows and sensual, deliberate albums. These two shrug off music industry conventions in favor of doing what feels good, and this genre-defying dedication to being current and free has an exciting and irresistible effect.
David LaMotte at The Cary Theater:
On Friday, January 15th we have returning to The Cary Theater, one of the inspirations behind the Six String, our good friend and internationally known musician, peace advocate, author and philanthropist David LaMotte. David will be celebrating 25 years in the music business. Opening for David will be the always entertaining and inspiring Grace Adele and Keenan Wade.
David LaMotte is an award-winning songwriter, speaker, author and activist. He has produced 11 CDs and performed 2500 concerts on five continents. The Boston Globe says he “pushes the envelope with challenging lyrics and unusual tunings, but he also pays homage to folk tradition,” while BBC Radio praises his “charm, stories, humour, insightful songs, sweet voice and dazzling guitar ability.” LaMotte suspended his music career in 2008 to accept a Rotary World Peace Fellowship, earning a master’s degree in international studies, peace and conflict resolution from the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia. As part of that program, he also spent three months in rural Andhra Pradesh, India, working with a Gandhian development organization. David maintains a dense calendar of speaking and musical events worldwide.
Imagine a perfect blend of Nashville and Vaudeville, incorporating sensibilities from Music City with Radio City, and you’ll find the dynamic femalefronted Americana group, The Farmer & Adele. With a distinct vintage style, Grace Adele sets her stage with traditional American roots drawn from classic country, western swing, bluegrass and folk. A native of Ohio, Grace Adele originally had her heart set on becoming a Rockette after years of classical training in ballet. With the help of Keenan Wade, she assembled The Farmer & Adele, a band consisting of violin, double bass, guitar, mandolin, and pedal steel. Touring with their brand new album featuring the legendary country western group, Riders in the Sky, titled “Into the Wide Open Sky”, The Farmer & Adele are sure to dance their way into your heart.
