On June 24, the Rooster’s Wife will bring the seventh concert of the summer season to downtown Aberdeen with singer songwriter Laurelyn Dossett and banjo and slide guitar player extraordinaire, Tony Furtado.
Seating is available inside as well as outside under the awning and under the stars. Picnics are welcome.
Tickets are available online at theroosterswife.org or at the door if still available. Admission for this week’s show is $12 in advance; $15 the day of the show.
Dossett has written for the symphony, the stage, and Levon Helm. She has taught at Augusta Heritage, sung on “Prairie Home Companion” and penned an anthem that was covered by more than 25 artists, and reached past 60,000 hits on YouTube. Sunday’s concert will feature many of Dossett’s songs, both new and old.
If you’ve followed Tony Furtado’s prolific music career at all you won’t be surprised to know that his 15th album, Golden, is loaded with several impressive firsts. For the first time, he has self-produced and penned every track. It is also the first time his own artwork, a sculpture of a two-headed rabbit, has been featured on the cover.
Recorded, mixed and co-produced by friend and engineer, Rob Stroup, at 8-Ball Studio in Portland, Oregon, Golden is the product of Furtado surrounded by the comforts of home, weaving his way through the diverse cultural fabric of a city rich with music, art and talent. In classic Furtado fashion, he explores the hills and valleys of familiar and new musical territory ranging from Americana, Celtic and folk to indie rock and pop. And while his award-winning playing and unforgettable leads are present throughout, it is his vocal presence, diverse arrangements and songwriting that take center stage on Golden.
The Rooster’s Wife is a community arts organization committed to bringing the best in live music to the Sandhills. Home base is the gallery room of Poplar Knight Spot, 114 Knight St. in downtown Aberdeen.
