Last week, Awendaw Green presented the first listening room showcase in their new Queen Street Harmony Series. The series features intimate performances in the seated Footlight Players Theatre. The Queen Street Harmony series will continue this Thursday, June 21st with performances from Carey Murdock and Tyrone Cotton.
Carey Murdock will open the night performing songs off his 2015 album If It’s Got Wheels, as well as some new music that he’s currently working on in Augusta and Nashville. He is perhaps most well-known for his song “Young Love”, a duet with Cary Ann Hearst from Charleston’s beloved Shovels & Rope. You may have seen Carey opening up for prominent artists such as NEEDTOBREATHE, Florida Georgia Line, Grace Potter, and more.
After Murdock’s set, Tyrone Cotton will take the stage to perform a set filled with blues and soul. Hailing from Louisville, KY, Tyrone cites his earliest musical inspiration as the raspy voice of his late Grandfather the Reverend Cleveland Roosevelt Williams. From there, Tyrone dug into the music of Jerry Garcia, Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Guy and perhaps most importantly Mississipi John Hurt. Tyrone is working on a new album with Josh Kaufman, who has worked with artists like The National, Bob Weir, and Josh Ritter.
Tickets are $10 in advance, and $15 day-of-show. Doors at 6:30pm, show at 7. Get yours here.
