Natalie’s presents three award winning singer songwriters for one special night of music.
Local standout Rj Cowdery is bringing her Nashville friends, Becky Warren and Mary Bragg to town to swap songs ‘in the round’. Opening the show will be special guests Nathans and Ronstadt, so be sure to join us for this not-to be-missed event!
As heard on NPR’s All Things Considered, Nashville singer/songwriter Becky Warren’s debut solo album War Surplus relays the affecting, gritty and candid tale of the relationship between an Iraq-bound soldier named Scott and his girlfriend, June. As the story unfolds, the two meet, fall in love, and struggle to hold it all together when he returns from his deployment with PTSD. From the record’s award-winning lead track straight through ‘til the last note, Warren’s potency as a songwriter is on full display, as she weaves a compelling musical narrative rooted in her own life experiences and the rich sounds of Americana and rock & roll.
2017 MerleFest Chris Austin Songwriting Contest winner Mary Bragg spent 10 years living in New York City after a small town upbringing in south Georgia. Now based in Nashville, she is touring in support of her new album Lucky Strike. “With a voice like a clear mountain stream, rippled with emotion and swirled with a hint of gold-dust gravel, she infuses each song with a panful of passion quickened by intelligent lyrics and resonant melodies, all backed up by superb musicianship and production.” -BlogCritics
“Rj Cowdery plays a clean guitar, flat picking or strumming and stringing chords together to build melodies built like a proverbial brick house and pours over it all with a voice like butter. Her lyrics are sincere and plainspoken, as one might expect from someone who grew up in small town Ohio.” – Vancouver Island Music Festival
The dynamic cello- guitar duo of Aaron Nathans & Michael G. Ronstadt push the boundaries of folk music with a creative, adventurous, and wildly enjoyable new work.
