Redleg Husky with Cari Ray
April 12, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$5
Redleg Husky is a country, bluegrass, and blues duo based in Asheville, North Carolina featuring Tim McWilliams on acoustic guitar, banjo, and vocals, and Son the Bassman on bass and vocals. With more than five hundred shows already under their belt, Tim and Son are excited to continue their musical evolution, developing new takes on classic songs, bringing an impassioned live show to audiences throughout the region, and pushing musical boundaries within the many sub-genres of Americana.
Cari Ray’s songs sound authentic because they are. Born into a musical family and raised on a rural Indiana farm, her musical roots were planted in bluegrass, blues & southern gospel. And while her style lands solidly in the Roots/Americana category, flavors of her early influences peek through in her songs. The Cash-esque “Red Line” will take you rattling down the tracks with a jilted lover while the ballad “Lighting” will stir you with a story about passionate love with poor timing. Whether relaying triumph or tragedy, her songs have a universal quality that allows the listener to effortlessly drop into the story and live it for him or herself.
