Music from Stanley is quite the concert series. With a stellar lineup of bands and musicians, weekly summer concerts and the gorgeous Redfish Lake as the backdrop, there's no way you'll have anything less than an outstanding time. Especially this Sunday, when singer/songwriter Carrie Rodriguez performs.
Carrie Rodriguez is a Mexican-American folk artist who plays guitar, mandolin and fiddle. She's known for her modern take on classic blues, soul, country and Americana. Her live performances are fine-tuned and can shift from laid-back balladry to high-energy rock 'n' roll. Her professional career began in 2001 after meeting Chip Taylor (a famous songwriter best known for the tune "Wild Thing") during SXSW. She teamed up with Taylor on four albums and a tour across Europe, and since then her career has taken off.
Rodriguez has toured extensively across the country with the likes of Lucinda Williams and Alejandro Escovedo. Her latest album, Love & Circumstance, has Rodriguez interpreting the songs of M. Ward, Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings, Bonnie Owens and Merle Haggard, Townes van Zandt, Hank Williams and more.
For those who aren't able to make the drive north, Music From Stanley will air the Carrie Rodriguez performance on KISU, KBSU or KBSW this fall.
Sunday, Aug. 1, 4-7 p.m., FREE, Redfish Lake Lodge, Stanley, musicfromstanley.com.
