Great Food, Great Wine, and AMAZING Live Music in Blue Ridge!
Acclaimed bombshell songstress Julia Haltigan came up on the Lower East Side of New York City when it oozed a heady mix of danger, possibility and art. She made meaning of the complexities of her childhood with her fathers incarceration, a freewheeling lifestyle of parties and a revolving cast of street characters. Julia emerged from it all a sensitive badass who rides vintage Triumph motorcycles and sings primal rock n roll with smoldering expressivity. Her signature artistry evokes Brigitte Bardot, Marianne Faithfull, Iggy Pop, Debbie Harry, and Lou Reed.
Her latest EP, Hot Tears, is a masterful collection, teeming with themes of heartache, images of broken bones, car chases, and nostalgia. Stunners in this set include the gritty swagger of the T. Rex-like Money, the 1960s James Bond ballad-esque Burning Bridges & Breaking Hearts, and the sleek and smoky How To Make A Broken Heart, co-written with songwriting legend Mike Scott of The Waterboys.
Julia has performed as a part of the Varvatos Music Series, filling the store over capacity leaving a line around the block, and live on taste making radio personality Vin Scelsa's show Idiot's Delight. Shes also shared the stage with such venerated names as Judy Collins, Steve Earle, Justin Earle, Norah Jones, Montgomery Gentry, Rhett Miller and Nicole Atkins among others.
Outside of her solo career, she moonlights as the slinky Jessica Rabbit inspired jazz crooner Vivian Fairchild in the off-Broadway hit Sleep No More. She also performs in the fizzy pop band Sugar For Sugar, alongside her buddies Scarlett Johansson (yes, THAT Scarlett Johansson), Kendra Morris, Holly Miranda and producer Dave Sitek. When not onstage or in the studio, Julias straddling a 1970 Triumph Bonneville.
Joining Julia at this exclusive performance will the artist Janita. Critical acclaim fused with commercial success may be rare in the music world, but this happy combination remains Janitas norm: Janita mesmerizes . . . her distinctive vocals are her stand-out asset, ranging between an edgier Feist and a softer Florence Welch, declares Paste Magazine. Baeble Music adds, Combining the vocal intensity of Bat for Lashes Natasha Khan with the turbulent rock edge of St. Vincent, Janita continues to mark herself as an artist capable of producing music of great beauty and unsettling power.
Janita continues to promote the Deluxe Edition release of her recent breakthrough album, Didnt You, My Dear?, having just returned from a second major tour of the United Kingdom, and her first headlining tour of the East Coast of the US in December of 2017.
The concert will be held at the gorgeous Toccoa Riverside Restaurant, overlooking the rushing Toccoa River. Guests will have the choice of a Tapas & Wine Tasting option, or a delicious Three Course Meal to enjoy as part of the festivities. Proceeds from the show will benefit a local charitable organization.
