Beautiful Day Album Tour
Singer/songwriter/guitarist Abigail Dowd, who grew up here in Moore County, returns home on tour with a full band to share her third album, "Beautiful Day." Pulling from her heritage of storytelling and determination,
Dowd weaves hints of Celtic melodies with the soulful gospel of the south to create a sound that dances between folk, rock and blues. Known for her storytelling and command of an audience, American Songwriter has called her latest album “a friendly reminder that life’s blessings are happening in the here and now.”
Learn more about Abigail at:
In the 1960s, Burt Bacharach, Hal David, and Dionne Warwick captured lighting in a bottle, crafting some of the most sophisticated pop music of all time. Together, their small canon made an enormous impact on American Music, but they were three very distinct individuals.
It’s time to listen to their works with fresh ears! Harriell and Iverson present just that with an evening of the trio’s masterpieces "straight"—with a flourish or two here and there. Iverson’s thoughtful transcriptions of the original recordings lithely re-conceive the settings for quartet, opening the stage for Harriell’s passionately charismatic interpretations. The audience can’t help but tap a toe, hum along, and ultimately, leave feeling that this may very well be what the world needs now.
