Caroline Aiken returns to grace the stage at Red Light Café this Memorial Day weekend, and we're celebrating with a special price of just $12 advance and $15 day-of-show!
Independent to the bone – with seven CDs and a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Folk CD in 2006 – Caroline Aiken has performed numerous times to benefit thousands of causes, and has played thousands of shows in her 40-plus years of touring at home and abroad. Writing, producing shows, festivals, theaters, and series, she has also served 12 years as Entertainment Director for the Atlanta Dogwood Festival. Her bluesy voice, masterful finger picking guitar style and hypnotic stage presence made her the artist of choice to open for such diverse music legends as Arlo Guthrie, Muddy Waters, Doc Watson, Bonnie Raitt, Randy Newman, Little Feat, the Beach Boys, Richie Havens and many others during her 43 year career.
Carly Gibson and BJ Wilbanks open for the inimitable Caroline Aiken. Performing as Gibson Wilbanks, they have combined their considerable songwriting and musical skills to create the unique and popular Southern bluesy sound that helped them to win the coveted songwriter’s open mic at Eddie’s Attic in December of 2011. Think Gregg Allman meets Bonnie Raitt meets Michael Hedges with a dash of Al Green–in short, an entertaining and joyful experience not to be missed! $12 Adv • $15 Door
