When we first heard BettySoo's stunningly beautiful singing voice (any Kirsten Maxwell fans out there?), we didn't know much about her music. We didn't know what to expect, but between Betty's songs, her voice, and her storytelling, we became fans on the spot. We've been hoping to host a show for her for awhile, and the timing worked out so that she'll be on our "stage" for the first time on Saturday, November 9th.
A solo artist who has released seven records on her own, Betty also performs as part of the popular Austin-based trio Charlie Faye and the Fayettes. And recently, Betty joined up with Grace Pettis and Rebecca Loebe for a part-time project known as Nobody's Girl. The trio's debut EP, Waterline, was released a year ago.
From her website ...
BettySoo’s vocal prowess is a thing of wonder. A world-class instrument of deft phrasing and purity, a voice that knows when to hold back and when to dive in. At her own live shows, taking a verse onstage with friends or singing harmonies in sessions with Austin’s finest, BettySoo sings with consummate loveliness and self-assurance.
We're thrilled to welcome BettySoo to MCC.
We can't believe we're saying this, but Nora Jane Struthers' fourth appearance here at MCC is the kickoff to our sixth season! Where does the time go?
Many of you will remember that first concert, where Nora and her musical partner (and now husband) Joe Overton took us outside in front of our house and gave us all Tennessee two-step lessons. Then, in 2017, it was too hot to go outside and ... well, this happened. Joe is one of Nora's special guests (along with baby Annabell).
What might surprise you is that Nora's second special guest is her dad, Alan Struthers. Nora and Alan have been singing together since Nora was a girl, and last year recorded and released their second album together, Rose Of My Heart.
A Nora Jane Struthers show will include some of her (and Joe's) original music, some traditional old country and bluegrass tunes -- and this night -- songs she wrote and recorded with her dad!
Nora has released six records, the most recent full band record being Champion, in 2017.
We're so happy to welcome Nora Jane, Joe, Annabell and Alan to MCC.
