An interior designer by day; a Jazz Belle by night, singer Ruth Cooney, brings her ‘styling’ skills to the intimate Lounge Stage at the IsisMusic Hall. With her favorite Great American Songbook tunes at the ready, those of you who have yet to hear her sell-out tribute show to Joni Mitchell will be treated to a select few of those tunes as well! Ruth’s smooth and polished voice coupled with her composed but radiant stage presence welcomes us to come on in, sit down and take a load off.
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!
