Emilie Burke Plays At Mountain Arts Community Center Saturday

Monday, September 24, 2012

Emilie Burke will perform at the Mountain Arts Community Center on Saturday at 7 p.m.   

Review for Emilie Burke:
Emilie Burke hails from the little Shenandoah town of Markham, Va. Her Blue Ridge raising seems to infuse her earthy vocal performances of classic country/folk/bluegrass/rock and blues (what she terms Americana music).   Emilie’s sound is somewhere between Patsy Cline, Carole King and KoKo Taylor.  

Upon her arrival to Tennessee back in ‘01, she performed for years in the honky-tonks such as “Bluegrass Inn,” “Tootsie’s” and "Second Fiddle" on Lower Broadway in Nashville.  Emilie is a regular fixture at the world famous Bell Buckle Café and often performs for Tennessee State Parks and at other regional venues and events.   

Emilie’s musicians are stellar cream-of-the-crop Nashville talent who have toured and done session work for dozens of top names in the business. 

Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door.
