CCAC: Lauren Crosby returns to her roots
Local singer-songwriter Lauren Crosby returns with Robby Simpson to perform on Saturday, March 16 at 7:30 p.m. in the Chocolate Church Annex at 804 Washington St., Bath.
Lauren Crosby, originally from Georgetown, is returning to her roots at the Chocolate Church to perform an evening of acoustic music. A local lobsterman’s daughter, Crosby has been touring internationally and is returning home for a tour here in the States.
She is an exceptional American singer-songwriter with an oceanic-like voice that captures audiences of all ages. Her songs are performed with a raw powerful yet seamless delicate force. She has received national praise for her performances of songs that uniquely blend the genres of blues, folk, and jazz, infused with southwestern flavors.
Joining Lauren on stage will be bandmates Justin Maxwell (Maine Dead Project) and Aaron Nadeau (Workin' Dead, Work Trucks).
Opening for Lauren Crosby will be folk-rock singer-songwriter, Robby Simpson. Robby Simpson’s music is founded in the folk-rock traditions of the '60s and ’70s. He is a true troubadour with a Dylan-esque lyrical style who writes lyrics that tell stories of truth and passion.On his recent debut album, Traveling Without Weapons, his acoustic and electric styles reveal one who has worshipped the 60’s guitar gods and the blues gods before them.”
