The Matriarch of Asheville takes the stage, one Dame Linda Mitchell! Her rich and raspy Blues voice drives us all mad with satisfaction. Known for spinning Jazz Standards into webs of whimsy and mystery, Mitchell’s vast knowledge of Jazz singers and players shines through with her authentic renditions of classics like Jazz Ain’t Nothin’ But Blues and Take 5. No matter the tempo or feel, Linda’s prowess as a seasoned singer cannot be denied from any angle to the dangle. Peggy Ratusz opens.
The Asheville Lounge Sessions
The Isis Music Hall will be hosting a brand-new weekly series called The Asheville Lounge Sessions. Featuring and focusing on area vocalists, the 90 minute dinner and a showcase will take place in the intimate upstairs lounge.
Veteran guitarist and accomplished songwriter, Jonathan Pearlman who once hosted the area’s premiere and time-honored Thursday night Jazz Jam in downtown Asheville, will reprise his band leading role for this series. He will direct a rotating-member house band that will back up local vocalists performing various styles of music each Thursday night beginning at 7pm.
Opening the showcase each week, and serving as MC will be Best In Blues Chanteuse, Peggy Ratusz. While the crux of each month of Thursdays will feature singers in the upstairs lounge, occasionally Jonathan and Peggy will switch things up and become hosts of The Asheville Jam Session starting at 8:30pm downstairs on the main stage. For these nights, area musicians and musician-vocalists will jam the night away for 2 hours of impromptu, extemporaneous Blues and Jazz music!
