“Jeanne Jolly can singJeanne Jolly The Clayton Center anything and sing it well…”

This quote from David Menconi, News & Observer music writer, sums up the talent of Jeanne Jolly. Jeanne’s music blends the earthiness of American roots music with jazz sophistication and the smoldering emotion of soul balladry. Her vocals seamlessly shift between down-homey and sweetly soaring.

Jeanne began her musical career as a featured vocalist for Chris Botti. While touring with the Grammy award-winning jazz trumpeter, she worked with world-renowned symphonies and had the distinct honor to perform at venues such as Carnegie Hall and play marquee events such as the Monterey Jazz Festival. She is classically trained as a singer and holds a master’s degree in vocal performance from the New England Conservatory of Music.

Over the years, Jeanne has been praised as a singer-songwriter who “melds folksy, soulful country with heavenly, heartfelt lyricism” (News & Observer), and as a vocalist who “can easily shift to the dusky lilt of Alison Krauss or the sophisticated jazz phrasing of Rickie Lee Jones” (Missoulian). The Boston Globe calls her “one of contemporary music’s best kept secrets. She is a revelation when you sit in on one of her concerts.”

On her latest album, A Place To Run, Jeanne’s musical background comes together organically, like never before. Her accomplished musicality, intimate lyrics, and passion and respect for the heritage of country, folk, and soul music smoothly blend together with elegant earthiness.

Jeanne Jolly appears in concert at The Clayton Center’s 2016-17 Season Kick-off party. More information about the event is available here.

Over the last 40 years, American rock guitarist, pianist, singer, and songwriter John Hiatt has released 22 albums and bridged a variety of genres. His music crosses boundaries between Americana, blues, folk, and country. Touring in support of his most recent album, Terms of My Surrender, Hiatt is performing a special Evening with John Hiatt.

Hiatt’s songs have been recorded by artists as diverse as Bob Dylan, Bonnie Raitt (“Thing Called Love”), Emmylou Harris, Iggy Pop, Rosanne Cash (#1 country hit, “The Way We Make A Broken Heart”), the Jeff Healey Band (“Angel Eyes”), and even the cartoon bear band of Disney’s film, The Country Bears. He earned a Grammy nomination for Crossing Muddy Waters, while B.B. King and Eric Clapton shared a Grammy for their album Riding With The King, the title track from which was a Hiatt composition. Hiatt has received his own star on Nashville’s Walk of Fame, the Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting, has been inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and was saluted at the Indiana Governor’s Arts Awards.

The rock-country-blues fusion album Bring The Family – performed with Ry Cooder, Nick Lowe, and Jim Keltner – was Hiatt’s first charted effort, and he was subsequently named Best Male Vocalist in Rolling Stone’s annual Critics Poll. Always prolific, in the last few years Hiatt has released Same Old Man, The Open Road, Dirty Jeans & Mudslide Hymns, Mystic Pinball and Terms of My Surrender.
