Description: Singer-songwriter Carrie Rodriguez Visits EOH, Sponsored by WAER FM The Earlville Opera House will host an evening with singer-songwriter Carrie Rodriguez, sponsored by WAER FM. Carrie Rodriguez, a singer-songwriter from Austin, Texas, finds beauty in the cross-pollination of diverse traditions. A passionate performer, she effortlessly melds fiery fiddle playing, electrifying vocals and a fresh interpretation of new and classic songs with an “Ameri-Chicana” attitude. Her newest project, the upcoming Spanish/English album “Lola,” is both a return to her musical roots and something of a departure where she delivers her own twangy, Texas-bred twist on Mexican Ranchera songs, creating culturally blended music for a culturally blended world. Inspired by the 1940’s-era recordings of Carrie’s great aunt, Chicana singing sensation Eva Garza, the album is a mixture of new and old songs. It features Spanish songs written by some of Carrie’s favorite Mexican composers, as well as her own Ranchera-inspired original songs written in English, Spanish and “Spanglish. Carrie Rodriguez will perform at the Earlville Opera House September 16th at 8 PM. Tickets are $40 general, $35 members, and $20 students/youth, with premiums applying in the first 4 rows. Doors open at 7:30 PM. For more information or to purchase tickets, call 315-691-3550 or visit www.earlvilleoperahouse.com. The Opera House is located at 18 East Main Street, in Earlville, NY.
