The Jackson County Public Library is hosting a musical concert featuring singer-songwriter Heidi Holton on Thursday June 2nd at 7 PM in the Community Room. This program is free of charge.
Heidi Holton is turning heads with her unique take on one of America’s oldest popular musical traditions. At once authentic and yet utterly new, her take on blues standards such as "Baby Please Don’t Go" and "Statesboro Blues" is nothing short of a revelation. Her tasteful originals shine just as brightly, seemingly both familiar and fresh.
Heidi Holton began young, leaving Murphy, North Carolina to play in rock bands in Athens, GA and New Orleans, before the blues called and she answered. She studied under the great Jorma Kaukonen and then disappeared to Alaska’s arctic interior to perfect her craft. She has recently moved back to Murphy, North Carolina and is touring around the Southeast.
This program is free and open to the public. The event is co-sponsored by the Friends of the Jackson County Public Library. For more information, please call the library at (828) 586-2016.
