Week in Review

Sunday, March 22nd, 2015

Earlier in the week we were pleased hear, for the first time, Starlett Brown. She performed as one of the acts for the Women in Music event at the Community Folk Art Center.

Brown has sang background for many national-acts. In this clip she shows her range and takes a secular song and folds it into the sacred realm. Listen and let it take you to church…

Lady Sings the Blues (part 2)

Here is a Marvin Gaye cover from Thursday’s Women in Music event at the Community Folk Art Center. You’ll enjoy the great melodic synergy between Sherri Williams, Jeff Houston and Travis Reed, plus the slide show of local and national protest photographs that accompanied the song was genius. Almost makes you wanna holler!

Vocalist Sherri Williams in performance at CFAC.

Vocalist Sherri Williams talked about the impact of music on her family.

We saw five dynamic ladies participate in the Women in Music series last night at the Community Folk Art Gallery (CFAC). The featured vocalist was Sherri Williams.  Her set, complete with a visual slide show, reminded us how much our relationship to music has changed in terms of sharing and appreciating songs. Unlike today’s personal device/social media/digital download environment, back in the day we often listened to music as families, and did our own version of liking and sharing.  One particular cut Williams remembered hearing through her uncle’s collection was “For the Love of You” by the Isley Bros.  Her rendition of that classic, with Jeff Houston on guitar and Travis Reed on keys, ushered in a sweet wave of nostalgia that felt like a late summer cookout.
