Jeff and Vida Return to Aberdeen
The Rooster's Wife continues to bring words and music to Aberdeen with a pair of accomplished singer-songwriters - Jeff and Vida - Sunday, Oct. 3.
The doors at Poplar Knight Spot open at 6 p.m. with music at 6:45 p.m. The gallery is totally accessible with parking adjacent to the building at 114 Knight St., in downtown Aberdeen.
Jeff and Vida met in New York City in 1997, but soon left for New Orleans, where they began writing and performing on a regular basis. They quickly became a force on the New Orleans music scene, winning multiple awards and building a solid following among fans and critics alike. They began touring full time in 2001 and have since played more than 200 dates a year across the United States and Europe. They released four studio recordings, along with a live disc, to wide critical acclaim.
Jeff and Vida's nine years of performing and songwriting have seen them delve into many different genres of music: country, honky-tonk, rockabilly and even a little rock 'n' roll. But throughout their career, which has included four critically acclaimed albums, literally thousands of live shows in the U.S. and Europe, and a move from New Orleans to Nashville, bluegrass has remained a key influence in their style and sound.
Following Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Jeff and Vida relocated to Nashville, where they became part of the burgeoning alternative music scene.
The Rooster's Wife presents words and music this fall, with an interesting array of genres, from singer-songwriters to poetry readings, to full-on jazz, to fulfill the mission of creating and maintaining community through the arts.
