CPW and Heartwood Present Edie Carey with support from Resonance!
Friday March 8 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm$12 – $20
Chicago-based singer-songwriter Edie Carey is known for her unmistakable, soulful voice, her intelligent, heart-grabbing songs, but perhaps most especially for her warm, engaging presence on – and off – stage. As much a part of her show as the music itself, Carey’s wry and often self-mocking humor makes audiences feel as though they have just spent an evening with a very close friend.
Carey has been singing at festivals, colleges, and listening rooms across the US, Canada and Europe since 1999, performing alongside Emmylou Harris, Lyle Lovett, Brandi Carlile, and Shawn Mullins. She’s also been a featured artist on NPR’s Mountain Stage.
Her latest offering, ‘Til The Morning, a joint effort with award-winning singer-songwriter Sarah Sample, was funded entirely by their loyal and steadily growing legion of fans, as were Carey’s previous three records. Produced by Scott Wiley, the duo’s CD features appearances by cellist and vocalist Mai Bloomfield (Jason Mraz, Raining Jane), violist Aaron Ashton (Peter Cetera, Smokey Robinson) and Sam Cardon (Composer, My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend, Olympic Winter Games).
And we are very excited to also have local Gainesville favorites Resonance opening for Edie. Many of you heard Resonance when they performed Acapella arrangements of several Tom Petty tunes at last year’s Heartwood Tom Petty Birthday Bash. They are incredible!
