Twang Thursdays: The Girls from Ruby Falls
Thursday, January 3, 2019, 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until Thursday, January 31, 2019
The Girls from Ruby Falls is a concept project, put together to tell the story of Laurel and Iris Caulthorn, two sisters raised on whiskey and wildflowers in the Tennessee River Valley. They sing “story-songs” in character while on stage.
Dreamed up by award-winning musicians Heather Fay (CTMA Best Folk 2015 and Best Singer/Songwriter 2016), and Sarah LeMieux (Best Jazz 2014/2015/2016 and Album of the Year 2015) – two women with the songwriting chops to land film placements, a show at Google headquarters, and a spot on the One Compilation in between Bono and Bruce Springsteen – The Girls from Ruby Falls are rounded out by players who’ve graced stages from the Grand Ole Opry to the National Women in Blues Festival, the Springfield Symphony Orchestra, Des Moines Opera, International Arts and Ideas Festival, CMJ, Podunk Bluegrass, Infinity Hall and Jazz at Lincoln Center.
The Girls from Ruby Falls evoke the beautiful, emotional vocals of Linda Rondstadt and Alison Krauss, the authentic, well-crafted songwriting of Dolly Parton and John Prine, the Lush Harmonies of Crosby, Stills and Nash and the bluesy chops of the Allman Brothers.
