Piedmont Melody Makers: Chris Brashear, Alice Gerrard, Cliff Hale & Jim Watson
January 24, 2014 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$12 - $20
“Genuine handmade, locally sourced, organic American music is what veterans Chris Brashear, Cliff Hale, and Alice Gerrard will produce as the Piedmont Melody Makers at The ArtsCenter on Friday, January 24. Many of you have enjoyed Chris Brashear’s music with Peter McLaughlin for 20 years and our friends Robin & Linda Williams for the past six years and two CDs. A practicing veterinarian currently spending a year in Durham, Brashear possesses an engaging voice and awesome playing skills, as can be heard on his solo CD, Heart of the Country, which hit the top of the Folk-DJ charts. Alice Gerrard also hit #1 on those charts this fall with Bittersweet, which she debuted at The ArtsCenter last spring. The long time Durham resident, half of Hazel and Alice, continues to grow as a songwriter while remaining a commanding singer and musician. Jim Watson has delighted music lovers far and wide with the Red Clay Ramblers, Robin & Linda, and others. Chris Hale is a monster on the mandolin. This is a special program by a quartet of musical friends.”
