Ross Celebrates Release of CD
The Rooster's Wife operates as a function of the "buy it local" philosophy.
Supplying live local music is the primary goal, from the stage of Poplar Knight Spot, and in schools and other community settings. It is particularly special when it doubles the local factor with music from a local artist.
This Sunday, Nov. 20, the Rooster's Wife presents Lizzy Ross to the Sandhills in a full band show in celebration of her recently released album, "Read Me Out Loud." Ross first came to Aberdeen for a solo opening set in the summer of 2010.
Ross has been singing since she could make noise. Dubbed "the loudest child ever born" by her overjoyed parents, she deeply identified with "The Little Mermaid" and "Pocahontas." She still loves to sing, swim and traipse through forests, and has moved on to other artistic influences that run the gamut from Ella Fitzgerald to Katharine Whalen.
Ross was born and raised on the Chesapeake Bay in Annapolis, Md., where she participated in high school theater productions and played in a few jam bands as she honed her guitar skills. Her interest in songwriting and guitar blossomed in her early teens. Ross began performing solo at UNC-Chapel Hill, where she studied philosophy.
"We are proud to bring her fabulous blues groove back to Moore County," says organizer Janet Kenworthy.
Admission is $10 in advance, $12 at the door of the listening room of Poplar Knight Spot, 114 Knight St., in downtown Aberdeen.
The doors open at 6pm for this week's show, with the music kicking off at 6:46. Picnics are welcome. For more information, visit www.theroosterswife.org or call (910) 585-1614.
