In keeping with our mission “To Build Community Through Music”, the Down East Folk Arts Society will once again be bringing World Class Singers/Songwriters to Craven County and the Crystal Coast of North Carolina this Fall. We are pleased to announce our 2019 Fall Concert Series which will begin on September 11, 2019 and run each subsequent month through November 8, 2019.
Lauded by UK music reviewer Three Chords and the Truth as sounding like she was “…born to gypsy poets and raised by Emmylou Harris,” Asheville, North Carolina songstress Jane Kramer has garnered international recognition for the sultry, heartrending originality of her vocals and for the heavy-hitting lyrical eloquence of her songwriting. With deep roots in the musical traditions, culture and lore of her beloved Appalachia, Kramer’s songs are introspective, gracefully gritty and fiercely memorable. They elegantly sweep listeners down the gravel roads and southern coastal highways, midnight truck stops and lonely motel rooms of “hard learning” and lead home to the wooded Blue Ridge Mountains with moving acceptance of our flawed human experience. Kramer’s live performances are equally as poignant and engaging; rich with accessible, warm, often hilarious storytelling and gracefully lifting the veil between audience and performer.
Down East Folk Arts Society presents Jane at St. Claires Coffee house at St. Francis by the Sea Church. Drinks available before the show.
All shows are free but, donations are suggested.
