Crowd-favorite blues musician Cathy Grier will perform in an exuberant Blues Blowout at Door Community Auditorium (DCA) with her band The Troublemakers on Sept. 14, 7 pm, as part of DCA’s fall Blues, Roots and American Stories series.
Grier’s multidimensional guitar technique, gutsy vocal range and sterling songcraft have garnered acclaim worldwide, including a recent slot in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis. Trailblazing at an early age as an MTV Basement Tapes winner, she has since written hit songs, created a record company, produced artists in multiple languages, toured extensively and honed her craft as a subway busker in New York City.
Joining Grier will be the all-star backing ensemble The Troublemakers: Tony Menzer on bass, Jamey Clark on drums, Jim Ohlschmidt on guitar, Larry Byrne on keyboards and Pauli Ryan on percussion. Special guests Hans Christian (cello), Julia McConahay (violin) and Johnny O (harmonica) will also join them.
Tickets are $20; advance reservations are recommended. Buy tickets in person at the DCA box office, 3926 Hwy 42 in Fish Creek; by calling 920.868.2728; or at dcauditorium.org.
