Three award-winning songwriters co-bill Stargazers Theatre on Thursday, November 1.
Edie Carey will kick off the night playing the first set. Colorado-based singer-songwriter Edie Carey is known for her unmistakable, soulful voice, her intelligent, heart-grabbing songs, but perhaps most especially for her warm, engaging presence on – and off – stage. As much a part of her show as the music itself, Carey’s wry and often self-mocking humor makes audiences feel as though they have just spent an evening with a very close friend. Carey has been singing at festivals, colleges, and listening rooms across the US, Canada and Europe since 1999, performing alongside Sara Bareilles, Brandi Carlile, Emmylou Harris, Lyle Lovett, and Shawn Mullins. She’s also been a featured artist on PRI’s Mountain Stage. She's appeared at the country's most prestigious folk festivals including Telluride Bluegrass, Rocky Mountain Folks, Newport Folk, 30A Songwriters, and Cayamo. She released her 9th album, "Paper Rings: 8 love stories," in February 2016. Her prior release, a duo lullabies project with Sarah Sample, garnered several children's music awards, including Best Children’s Album in the 2015 Independent Music Awards.
While Lindsay (Weidmann) and Jeremy Facknitz are each award-winning, acclaimed singer-songwriters on their own, they will combine forces to perform as "Lindsay & Jeremy" on Thursday, November 1 at Stargazers Theatre. The duo will be backed by a full band consisting of David Siegel (violin), Mike Kimlicko (bass) and John Standish (keyboards). The Colorado Springs-based husband and wife act first shared the stage in 2009 after they were each nominated for "Solo Artist of The Year" by the Pikes Peak Arts Council. A friendship blossomed after the awards ceremony, which led to writing sessions, tours, appearances at Studio Bee and Meadowgrass Music Festival, an album, and eventually, marriage and children. Lindsay & Jeremy will close the night performing songs with Edie Carey.
