The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Lowcountry is excited to present South Carolina’s very own singer-songwriter Angela Easterling in concert on March 24.
Angela was raised in the South Carolina foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Much of her childhood was spent on the Greer, SC farm that has been in her family since 1791, seven generations. She embraced her heritage in a big way as a writer and an artist on her debut album, “Earning Her Wings,” chosen as Americana Pick of the Year by Smart Choice Music. Her second album, “BlackTop Road,” produced by Will Kimbrough, landed in the top 5 for adds to the Americana radio charts and debuted on the Americana top 40 chart, where it remained for 7 weeks. It has been highly praised in the press and was chosen as a top pick in both Oxford American and Country Weekly. The title song tells of her family’s struggle to hold onto their farmland in the face of widespread development and represents a bold new step in her singing and songwriting. She was selected for an official Americana Convention Showcase and also named a 2009 & 2010 Kerrville New Folk Finalist, a 2011 Telluride Troubadour and a 2012 Wildflower Performing Songwriter Finalist. The Boston Herald named her song “The Picture” Best Political Country Song in their 2009 Year’s best music. WNCW Listeners chose the album as one of the top CD’s of the year and one of the Top 20 by regional artists.
The performance will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Lowcountry (110 Malphrus Road, Bluffton). Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 students/children 12 and under. Tickets at the door. Doors open at 6:00 PM. Performance at 7 PM. Seating is general admission. Beer, wine and water will be available.
