Barrel Room Concert – Lauren Light and Emma Lee

 

This very special Holiday Concert in the Stonefield Cellars Barrel Room is SOLD OUT!

Local North Carolina singer/songwriters, Lauren Light & Emma Lee became friends as many other musicians do- by reaching out to each other to meet over coffee and talk shop! They hit it off right away, scheduled a few jam sessions, and quickly realized how compatible their vocal and musical styles were. They are so excited to bring you a unique, intimate evening showcase sharing acoustic holiday music along with other popular selections. While both singers exercise soulful, yet controlled vocals, Lauren brings a powerful, edgy punch that beautifully complements Emma’s clear, dynamic style. Together, they’re revamping the classics with tight vocal harmonies, and new exciting arrangements. Join Lauren & Emma in the cozy barrel room of Stonefield Cellars for a night of great music, wine and holiday cheer.

With lyrics and melodies that channel the strength of Odetta, the delicate twang of Kitty Wells, and the forthright softness of Loretta Lynn, Emily finds a song in every story. She also currently performs in the indie folk duet Magpie Thief and as a supporting guitarist and vocalist in Lightweight.

Barrel Room Concert – Dylan Foley, Sean Gavin, and Patrick Doocey (Celtic Music Masters)

CELTIC MUSIC by MASTERS of the genre!   UPDATE on performing trio:  Kevin Crawford (flute) will be replaced by Sean Gavin (also flute, see bio below). Kevin’s mother is gravely ill he has gone to be by her side.  We keep Kevin and his family in our prayers but the show must go on, so Sean will be joining Dylan and Patrick to perform an equally amazing Celtic Music concert for you! 

Dylan Foley (4-time All Ireland Fiddle Champ), Sean Gavin (of Bua) and Patrick Doocey (guitar) are cornerstone musicians in the NY Irish music scene. This trio will perform traditional and newly composed tunes. Celtic music is passion driven and good for the heart and soul year round….bring your friends and expose them to the real deal.

Dylan Foley is one of the great fiddle players of our time, an All-Ireland Fiddle Champion, delighting audiences from Lincoln Center to Irish Television channels RTE and TG4.   Dylan travelled with Mick Moloney in 2013, to Vietnam as part of Irish Aid, bringing Irish music and culture to those who were affected by the horrors of the Vietnam War. He teaches and performs at the major Irish music summer camps on both sides of the Atlantic. A member of The Yanks, the hot trad band that has been called” the next Irish American dream team”, Dylan is committed to passing on the tradition, as it was graciously passed to him, by the incomparable Rose Flanagan and others. You can hear his passion for the music in the intense drive of in his lively and fluid playing.

Sean Gavin plays the flute, whistle and uilleann pipes.  Sean’s playing reflects his lifelong immersion in, devotion to, and love for traditional Irish music. This was no doubt encouraged by his County Clare-born, fiddle playing father, Mick Gavin. As a boy in Detroit, Sean played a variety of Irish instruments until settling on the flute at age 10, inspired by Scariff flautist Leo MacNamara. Not long after, he began work on the uilleann pipes with teacher Al Purcell—himself a student of famed piper Leo Rowsome. Sean is a member of two acclaimed bands “Nua” and “NicGaviskey”.  Sean often performs with his family and remains firmly dedicated to playing and teaching traditional Irish music.

Patrick Doocey is predominantly self taught on the guitar and he is becoming one of the most in demand accompanists in the Irish music scene. He has toured all over Europe, Asia, Africa and America and current performs regularly with top band Lúnasa and Ragús – The Show.

It is an interactive event and audience participation is encouraged (but please be respectful and don’t converse with your neighbor while the artists are speaking or singing).

Our Barrel Room Concert this evening is a Songwriter Encore!  We loved the combination of four of our previously featured songwriters (from our June Songwriter Sunday concert) so much that we wanted to offer up the magic to folks preferring an evening event.   So if you missed them the first time (or just want to see these talented artists again), we suggest you purchase tickets in advance (we recommend in advance because our Barrel Room Seating is limited and it may sell out… see below for online ticket option, or call 336-644-9908).

Songwriters featured:

Brad Reaves

 

Brad Reaves  – Add expressive words to vibrating air and a song emerges. Inspired by the 1960s British invasion Brad Reaves’ list resonates with the maturity of diverse experience. A journeyman musician his songs, vocal prowess and instrumental chops showcase his love for the art form as he shares a ramble through the good, good, good, good vibrations.

She writes ballads of strength, loss, and triumph, features folk tales of those who should know better but just simply can’t help themselves. She performs hundreds of concerts and shows every year. She now lives in southeastern North Carolina in a 200 year old farmhouse with her bandmate and husband, drummer Dave Tippetts

 

Jack Gorham is a junkman/songwriter-it says so on his business card.  When he’s not rummaging through someone’s attic he can be found playing keys in bands such as Shaken and Stirred, Stained Glass Canoe and the El Dorados.  Gorham’s songs shed light on ideas about time, place, love and the human condition.  They are loaded with imagery and metaphor and delivered by engaging melodies and thoughtful piano accompaniment.
