2015 Summer Concert Series
LIZ PENNOCK & DR. BLUES*
Friday, May 1 • 8 pm
With an impressive repertoire of more than 250 songs, Liz Pennock & Dr. Blues never play the same show twice. Each performance features a large number of originals, most selected from their CDs. Liz & Doc also draw from traditional acoustic Blues from the 1920s and 1930s, the folk and rock Blues from the 1960s, through the contemporary electric Blues of today. Musician Lee Pons will open the show.
GIRLS NIGHT OUT*
Friday, May 15 • 8 pm
Our annual Girls Night Out will feature an all-female line-up of hilarious women who will keep you roaring in-between sips of chardonnay. This year, we are pleased to welcome headliner Helen Keaney (pictured) in her Center debut, along with our good friend Trish Keating. Also making her Center debut is Aniria, your evening’s emcee.
MOTOWN HEAT with the SOUNDS OF SOUL*
Friday, June 26 • 8 pm
They’re back! Join us for one of the hottest shows in town. The Sounds of Soul return to the Center for an encore presentation of last year’s sold out performance: Motown Heat.
JESSE & NOAH BELLAMY / GRACE & THE VICTORY RIDERS
Saturday, August 15 • 8 pm
Two concerts wrapped up in one! Singer/songwriters Noah & Jesse Bellamy along with Grace & The Victory Riders will perform in concert as we wrap up our Summer Concert Series.
Jesse & Noah Bellamy (the sons of David Bellamy of The Bellamy Brothers) have a unique sound, incorporating their close-harmonies, impressive guitar skills, and eclectic songwriting, firmly rooted in traditionalism but with a fearless expansion of modern inference. As multi-instrumentalists and songwriters, the brothers spend hours writing, producing, and recording new music in their home studio in Nashville, Tennessee when they are not touring.
Grace (the daughter of musician Jonathan Edwards) has released two albums, Hall of Mirrors and Made For Change. She sings folk, reggae, soul and blues-style original songs. Her music is influenced by her travels around the world, which include Kenya, Senegal, Ethiopia, France, India, Jamaica and more. She currently resides in Paris, California, and New York.
