July, and its HOT ! At the Spot !

 Sit outside or in, to enjoy a great show.There’s dinner available, and a full bar. We invite you to join our private club, an NC ABC rule,  $5/year which keeps us legal, and supports our programming.  We’ll be bringing all kinds of tunes this summer, including a ukulele workshop so you can learn your own, July 15 with Lil’ Rev, with a show that evening, with Laura Jane Vincent opening, original singer songwriters and  a dose of flamenco from Ed Stephenson and the Paco Band,  for big fun, July 22. Go west, as in West Africa ! July 28 with an album release celebration for Diali Cissokho & Kaira Ba and plan to attend our birthday bash, July 29 , with everyone’s favorite,Sand Band to end a great summer of music with two nights of total groove.

Our open mic this month, July 12,  will be hosted by singer/songwriter Laurelyn Dossett. She lives and writes in the piedmont of North Carolina. Her songs tend to reflect the stories of the region, both traditional and contemporary. One of the most sought-after voices in creative collaborations, she has toured with Rhiannon Giddens, folk legend Alice Gerrard and composer/violinist Daniel Bernard Roumain. 2014 brought her television debut as a songwriter in the popular AMC series, Hell on Wheels, Rick Clark, Music Supervisor. She co-wrote “Safe in the Hands of God” for episode 401, and wrote and performed “That I May See Your Face” in episode 410.
Our lucky day, Friday, the 13th, finds another fabulous female songwriter gracing our stage. To borrow a phrase from heaven’s new poet laureate, Leonard Cohen, Nicole Atkins was “born with the gift of a golden voice.” But somewhere along the way she misplaced it. Goodnight Rhonda Lee is the story of Nicole finding her voice, and how, in doing so, she went a little crazy.Traveling through a string of tough changes, she made it through, producing a great album as a souvenir. Catch her in Aberdeen on her way to the Newport Folk Festival !
