Roots musicians to perform for Woods Charter School Benefit

Three popular Roots Music groups will perform in a Cat's Cradle benefit for The Woods Charter School Foundation on Saturday, March 14. Eli "Paperboy" Reed and Great Big Gone will be joined by Lynn Blakey and Ecki Heins. The event begins at 8 p.m.

Massachusetts’ Eli “Paperboy” Reed and his band have gained international attention for their famously fiery live shows. The N.Y.Times said "Mr. Reed invokes the stylish and muscular R&B of Otis Redding and Sam Cooke" while The Times of London described his show as “a call to party like its 1969." Time Out N.Y. advised its readers, "If you do only do one thing this week, [go see] Eli 'Paperboy' Reed". Great Big Gone hails from the NC Piedmont and brews up a twangy blend of electrified porch picking, finger licking, roots rocking, western swinging, honky-tonking Americana all garnished with a pinch of Cajun. Lynn Blakey, a voice and songwriter you know from local Americana folk divas, Tres Chicas, performs solo with her fiddle playing husband Ecki Heins who adds colors and mirroring emotions to her rich and textured songwriting. Rootsy and down to earth; expect beautiful melodies and harmonies.
