To ask a premiere, award winning singer/songwriter to formula tea set list of cover tunes, can be sacrilege. But for the songwriters whose influences flow in and out of their own material while they bring freshness to familiarity, Mare Carmody’s strength as a song interpreter is evident from the first note no matter who wrote the song. Tonight’s playlist is a wonderfully rich gamut of songs made famous by Bonnie, Lucinda, Doc, Levon and Ella. We pull her away from her own band to join ours for one night only!
We invite you to make your reservations now for what’s sure to be a gratifying, endearing and lovely 75 minute show. 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!
