Cathedral Arts Live will welcome back the down-home sounds of Abbie Gardner on Nov. 22, 2019 at 7 p.m.
Singer and songwriter Abbie Gardner resumed her solo adventure after more than a decade of touring with Americana darlings Red Molly. Tales of love and loss, both gritty and sweet, ride the back of her by-now familiar, formidable slide guitar licks. Winner of the 2008 Lennon Award for The Mind of a Soldier and 2008 American Songwriter Magazine Grand Prize Lyric Winner for I’d Rather Be, she channels Lucinda Williams and Bonnie Rait, but remains pure Abbie.
A fan-favorite during Cathedral Arts Live’s prior seasons, we are delighted to see Abbie Gardner return to the stage at Grace Church Van Vorst.
“Cathedral Arts Live is such a great part of the Jersey City music scene,” said Gardner. “A true community-based series bringing regional and national acoustic acts to a gorgeous listening room. I can’t wait to end my year of touring the country with this local show in my adopted hometown.”
Kicking off the night is a performance by singer-songwriter Sean Kiely, whose melodies were described by WFMU’s Pat Byrne as taking “the listener to a place high above the astral plane, a place of comfort and warmth, glimpsed at in dreams but always unable to describe when conscious.”
Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door. Hot food and cold beverages available for purchase. Doors open at 7 p.m. To purchase tickets, visit cathedralartslive.org or facebook.com/cathedralartslive.
Now in its fifth season, Cathedral Arts Live aims to create a transcendent musical experience and strengthen our community by welcoming and celebrating a diverse group of artists, performers and audiences in our beautiful space.
