the Marie Vanderbeck Trio
Hear classic pop/jazz/blues “sweet and sassy” – as it is meant to be heard. You’ll find yourself singing along and tapping your feet and dancing to familiar songs like Night and Day, Makin’ Whoopie, God Bless The Child, Weary Blues, Crazy, and others.
Ken and Mike complement each other’s musicianship, and create the background that fits Marie’s vocals so well. Marie’s rich voice and phrasing bring out the best in each song, and takes you high and takes you low.
Nantahala is an indie folk band from the North Carolina Piedmont. Their harmony-rich music draws from mountain roots, soul and modern country with influences ranging from Dolly Parton to Tom Waits. Fans will recognize the songwriting of Mary Johnson Rockers, who with various configurations has three full-length albums and one EP under her belt and is noted for "songs that are catchy, well written and eclectic…nearly irresistible." (Chris Parker, Indyweek). With vocalist and collaborator Miriam Chicurel-Bayard, who met Mary on the Nantahala River 20 years ago, bassist FJ Ventre (Jon Shain, Wyatt Easterling), percussionist Robert Cantrell (Katharine Whalen, Tim Smith Band) and lead guitarist Eric Haugen (Fake Swedish, The Outboards), Nantahala features some of the area's best talent and delivers an intimate but powerful set that will move listeners to lean in for more.
