Seasonal Special Happenings

Angela Easterling

When: Wed., Sept. 23 2015

A veteran singer-songwriter who issued her debut back in 2007, Angela Easterling has the kind of brittle voice that really resonates. She recorded her latest album, Common Law Wife, with Joe Pisapia (Guster, k.d. lang, Drew Holcomb) at his Middletree Studios in Nashville. Guests on the album include seasoned musicians such as Will Kimbrough, Fats Kaplin, Dave Jacques and Paul Griffith. She wrote the tender ballad “Isaac Woodard’s Eyes” after learning about the real life story of an African-American World War II veteran who was savagely beaten and blinded by police officers in South Carolina just hours after being honorably discharged from the U.S. Army in 1946. The late folk singer Pete Seeger inspired the track “Hammer.” She performs a Listening Room Concert tonight at 7 with Brandon Turner at the Solon Branch Library. Admission is free. (Niesel)
