WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM 16 UCW OCTOBER 14-20, 2020 The Carolina Civic Center Historic Theater, located in downtown Lumberton, is presenting two upcoming virtual concerts that have been pretaped on its stage while the theater is closed to in-person audiences due to COVID-19 social gat- hering restrictions. These performances were originally scheduled as part of its 2020-21 season and continue the theater's commitment to programming during the ongoing pandemic and its related audience restrictions for performance centers. The first concert will premiere 7 p.m. Oct. 17 and will feature the Raleigh-based musician and singer-song writer Shana Tucker and her quartet. With a deep respect for lyrical stor ytelling, Tucker delivers a unique voice through her self- described genre of "ChamberSoul.™ Her melodies weave strong hints of jazz, classical, soulful folk, acoustic pop and a touch of R&B into a distinctive rhythmic tapestr y. The performances are premiering on the theater's Facebook page at "Carolina Civic Center Historic Theater" and are shared on its website at w w w.carolinaciviccenter.com. The theater's previous "Spotlight on Local Talent" Performance Series, featuring eight installments also can be viewed on its website. This performance is partially under written by a grant from the Robeson Count y Arts Council and the North Carolina Arts Council. Touted by JazzTimes Magazine as a jazz talent "…whose imprint and vitalit y has already been quite visible…" Tucker's st yle and sound has been described as a blend of Dianne Reeves, Joni Mitchell and Tracy Chapman, with an efficient complexit y that is reminiscent of Bill Withers. ChamberSoul ™ best describes what the listener should expect when experiencing Shana's music. "I'm intrinsically drawn to 'real' instruments, with resonance, tone and depth that can sound without amplification. W henever and however possible, I always tr y to set a tone of acoustic inti- macy with my colleagues on stage, and also with the audience, so that the music, performers and audience feel close and tangible, no matter the size the venue." Tucker has opened for internationally-acclaimed artists including Norah Jones, Lisa Fischer, Sweet Honey in the Rock, Hamiet Bluett, Javon Jackson, the Blind Boys of Alabama and Indigo Girls. W hile the concert is free, a donation link will be available to help support artist fees and produc- tion costs. The next concert will feature the all- female bluegrass group Sweet Potato Pie and will premiere Thanksgiving evening, Nov. 26.
