Tonight brings a downright spectacular pairing to Raleigh's NC Museum of Art, two wonderful acts guaranteed to get your mojo workin'. I've done interviews with both in the not-too-distant past; so you can read up on Bettye LaVette and Marcia Ball.
We've got more to report from the NC Museum of Art summer concert series, after yesterday's Bettye LaVette news. Confirmed for July 18 is Dan Zanes, originally a member of the Del Fuegos but lately a highly acclaimed star in the world of children's music. Ticket details to come.
New to the NC Museum of Art concert schedule, according to Pollstar listings: sassy soul goddess Bettye LaVette on July 10, in a killer pairing with bayou country pianist Marcia Ball. Should be a great one.
