The Sherbino Theater is pleased to welcome singer, songwriter Gabrielle Louise for a Fall Concert on November 8th at 7:00pm. For this special evening, Gabrielle Louise and her band will be performing original and interpreted songs that highlight the importance of social justice and environmental causes.
Gabrielle Louise is a nationally touring troubadour noted for her poignant lyrics and lush voice. The daughter of two vagabond musicians, Gabrielle inherited the predisposition to wanderlust and song. Her music is anchored deeply in folk and Americana, but undeniably drawn to rich harmonies and melodic adventurism. Her sound has the earthy feel of early Joni Mitchell while also veering into the spirited and versatile delivery of fellow genre-hopping artist Eva Cassidy. Unafraid to take a musical escapade in the name of inspiration, Gabrielle is at one moment folkie and ethereal, the next a smoky jazz chanteuse.
Known for her authenticity and candor on stage, Gabrielle’s performances are notably present and sincere, a professional presentation of her private creative world. Her story-telling and banter envelops and enchants, gently enticing her listener to release their grip on the status quo. Perhaps because of this quality, Louise has been entrusted to share the stage with greats such as Richie Havens, Tom Paxton, Joan Osborne, Eliza Gilkyson, and Guy Clark.
Gabrielle Louise will also have available her most recent recording, Live at Etown Hall, and will be donating a portion of its proceeds to the causes recognized in the show. The record couples the spirit and charm of a live performance with the careful orchestration and production of a studio record. It fea- tures live favorites of Gabrielle’s original material as well as some carefully selected covers by Mark Knopfler, Justin Evan Thompson, and James Keelaghan.
For this concert, Gabrielle Louise will be accompanied by Natalie Spears on bass, Greg Schochet on Telecaster, and Damon Smith on Drums. Gabrielle has handpicked and written a selection of material that addresses causes from land conservation to the #metoo movement, from building bridges between generations and cultures to the joys of local gardening.
Tickets for the Gabrielle Louise Concert are $15 and available in advance at 610 Arts Collective, or online at www.sherbino.org. In the meantime, read more about Gabrielle Louise’s music and ”Made for Something More Project,” songs for social justice, at www.gabriellelouise.com
