Roots, Folk and Blues at the Little Fox Theater

Original post made by beinglucy, another community, on Nov 1, 2006

Sunday, November 12, 2006 7:00pm "Women With Strings Attached" Featuring Deborah Thacker, Lucy Billings, and Mira Wooten Plus Special Guests The Little Fox Theater Web Link 2209 Broadway, Redwood City. Ca $12 Advance/ $14 Door (650) FOX-4119 No one under 21 years allowed

Deborah Thacker gives a first rate performance with a voice that is liquid gold. An accomplished, professional Bay Area performer, she blends pop, jazz and folk music into a smooth style all her own. As if Bonnie Raitt changed bodies with Norah Jones, then met Annie Lennox for coffee who was currently hosting Ella Fitzgerald’s soul.
For songwriter Lucy Billings, music is a language. She distills life events into songs, becoming more and more fluent in that tongue. "Sometimes the songs seem to write themselves," says Lucy. "They are like souls hovering, waiting to swoop in and join up with the appropriate melody -- I just help them to find each other." Her melodic compositions evoke the best of folk-roots music while Lucy's warm, rich voice rides on a lush blend of acoustic guitars, pedal steel and keyboards. Her voice is honest, her stories authentic, evoking in each listener a personal response.

Mira Wooten’s soulful and sultry sound captures the essence of contemporary talents like "India Arie", "Bonnie Raitt" and "Eva Cassidy", to name a few. An original stylist whose gift shines brightest in her own compositions of love and life.....Her woven lyrical patterns both reveal and haunt. She'll make you laugh, make you cry and leave you longing for more of that smooth silky voice that tells her story.
