November at the Webb Center features two young artists with exciting careers in country and folk.
Country singer Craig Campbell takes the Webb Center stage on Saturday, November 11 at 7:30pm. Campbell burst onto the country music scene in 2011 with his debut single “Family Man.” Delivering heartfelt messages and soulful lyrics, the singer-songwriter brings a traditional country sound to timeless songs that tell his life story.
Craig got his start after he moved to Nashville in 2002. He began to write and record his own music after receiving encouragement from fellow country musician Luke Bryan, with whom he is currently touring.
Campbell has charted five consecutive singles including “Outskirts of Heaven,” “Outta My Head” and the Top Ten hit “Keep Them Kisses Comin.” Tickets to see Craig Campbell and his band start at $40 for adults, $5 for youth 18 and under.
Dana Louise and the Glorious Birds perform a folk concert on Thursday, November 16 at 7:30 pm. Drawing from jazz and bluegrass influences, songstress Dana Louise brings vibrant vocals and melodic storytelling to a body of clever original songs and inventive covers.
During a solo journey to the Azores Islands in 2011, Dana Louise, a visual artist, taught herself to play guitar. The daughter of Ezra Idlet of the Grammy-nominated folk-duo Trout Fishing in America, Dana forged the beginnings of her sound, practicing amidst the archipelago’s lava rocks and dragon trees. Back in the States, she began singing and songwriting professionally, and is currently touring her self-titled debut album.
For her Wickenburg performance, Dana will be joined by the Glorious Birds: Adams Collins playing the vibraphone and 5-string banjo, her father Ezra Idlet on guitar, and bass/percussionist Keith Grimwood.
Dana Louise & the Glorious Birds infuses a contemporary beat into folk music to create unexpected musical combinations. The band is inspired to leave their audiences glowing with the magic music can bring: genuine human connection. Tickets to Dana Louise start at $22 for adults, $5 for youth 18 and under.
