Kerri Powers / Lauren King - CANCELED!
As of 9/12, this concert has been cancelled as Kerri has tested Covid positive just this afternoon. Both Kerri and Lauren will be re-booked in 2023 as their schedules allow. Lauren will be moving to Colorado in November so we will work to schedule a homecoming concert with her when a date for a visit is certain. Kerri will be releasing a new CD next year so we will make her concert a release party.
Drenched in the emotions of blues, folk and country music, roots singer/songwriter Kerri Powers uses her dramatically dark and beautiful voice to mine the depths of romantic heartbreak and broken dreams in the edgy narratives of her songs. A native of rural Massachusetts, Powers sings the blues with such authentic, down-home grit that you might well think she's from Mississippi. Besides being a consummate chronicler of disappointment and despair, she can also morph into an impishly naughty rebel with a cause, a Mark Twain-like trickster whose wry words and phrasing can also celebrate joy and hope. Says John Apice, of No Depression, “I don’t know where this young lady came from but it’s got to be a secret place. This is not the kind of singing and performing that can be easily taught. It has to be in your spirit, in your blood and the fact that she is from the Northeast is going to confound the artists down South, in the Delta, in Memphis, Clarksdale, Austin, and Nashville.” Raised in Smithfield, Rhode Island, Lauren King is a 25-year-old singer-songwriter with a penchant for pairing poetic lyrics with memorable melodies. Lauren recently won two 2022 RI Motif Music Awards for Best Singer-Songwriter and Best Country Act. King's album "The Wolf is Back" won a 2021 RI Motif Music Award for Americana Album of the Year.
