Celebration of NC Songwriting: Abigail Dowd, Jason Duff, & Barry Gray 8/26/21

August 26, 2021  ·  Thursday * 7-9:30 pm * NO Cover

Celebration of NC Songwriting:  Another inspired group of talent expertly assembled by Kirk Ridge.

Barry Gray is a member of the locally successful family band, Graymatter and also plays with The Bennys.  Barry won the 2017 Triad Festival Songwriters Competition and was awarded a North Carolina Arts Council Artist Fellowship in Songwriting in 2018 that enabled him to record the album “Footsteps”. His folk style has blues, country, and gospel influences, about personal struggle, community, and finding a way to make a difference in a complicated, unfair world.. www.reverbnation.com/barrygray

Abigail Dowd is known for her storytelling and command of an audience.  Her soulful voice and unique classical guitar style weave hints of Celtic melodies with the soulful gospel of the south to create a sound that dances between folk, rock and blues.  She has just released the album “Beautiful Day” that touches on her childhood in North Carolina and living in Maine. But mostly, the songs mine the ferocity of Mother Nature, the warmth of neighbors and the resiliency of the human spirit. www.abigaildowd.com
