Georgia Music Magazine calls Donna Hopkins a “genuine triple threat” due to her prowess as a singer, songwriter and guitarist. As authentic as it gets; Donna will be accompanied by The Ain’t Sisters. Taylor Martin will open
Donna Hopkins is the real deal. Born and raised on an Alabama farm, Donna witnessed life in the South first hand, channeling it into the soulful music that she creates and performs. Music runs in her family; her mother performed rock and roll in go-go boots and mini-skirts and her grandfather was a fine bluegrass musician in his own right. Following in their footsteps, Donna is a consummate seasoned performer with many songs and performances under her belt. As a young teenager, Donna recalls sneaking out to the MGM Grand in famous Muscle Shoals, Alabama to jam with David Hood, Roger Hawkins, and Harrison Calloway...it’s not many who can say they cut their teeth with members of Aretha Franklin’s band!
Georgia Music Magazine calls Donna Hopkins a “genuine triple threat” due to her prowess as a singer, songwriter and guitarist. In addition to her other talents, Donna also wears the producer’s hat, working with and developing up-and-coming talent in the Atlanta area. As much at home in an intimate listening venue as she is on a giant festival stage, Donna Hopkins is always a crowd pleaser and will be accompanied on stage by Atlanta sensations The Ain't Sisters for her November 9th performance at Isis Music Hall
Taylor Martin · 7:00pm
Taylor Martin brings you music with a beating heart; his raspy, emotion-filled voice is instantly recognizable and his lyrics have an unflinching sincerity. As one of Western North Carolina’s premier singer-songwriters, sometimes performing solo, sometimes with a band of rotating players, he has showcased five times at Sundance Film Festival in Utah, performed at the European Independent Film Festival, Suwannee Spring Reunion, Folk Alliance International in Memphis, and more. Martin has performed along with Acoustic Syndicate, Donna the Buffalo, The Honeycutters, The Grass Is Dead, David Bromberg, among others. Previous albums include Heartache or Bust (2014) and Engine (2009).
“Taylor Martin is a singer-songwriter who will remind you of everything good from Tom Waits to the Everly Brothers or the Avett Brothers with some surf rock thrown in. Well-sung, well-played, well-written and relevant...” writes
