At the Gallery: Randy Newman ​January 26, 2019 The nephew of 3 Hollywood film score composers, Randy Newman is widely known for his film scores and compositions, as well as his distinctive voice and satirical songwriting. His 1968 self titled debut album received critical acclaim and praise from other musicians, but never achieved Billboard success.  Newman has received twenty Academy Award nominations, and twice won the “Best Original Song.” He composed the scores for “Toy Story,” “Ragtime,” “Cats Don’t Dance,” and numerous other live action and animated movies. Hits include “You’ve got a Friend in Me,” “Short People,” and “Feels Like Home.” The Heather Pierson Trio burst onto the national folk scene in 2015 with their debut EP, “Still She Will Fly.”  It features the multi‐genre songwriting, instrumental arrangements and stirring three-part vocal harmonies.  The title track was the #2 single on Folk radio in 2015. Heather Pierson (lead vocals, piano) is an award-winning singer/songwriter and performer.  With eight previous solo recordings, Heather’s wise-beyond-her-years songwriting, angelic voice and world-class chops have catapulted her into the spotlight. Davy Sturtevant (cornet, dobro, fiddle, mandolin, harmony vocals) is a veteran touring artist, songwriter, and performer.  Armed with a gorgeous tenor voice, Davy is at once a witty, thoughtful and engaging musical presence. Shawn Nadeau (bass, harmony vocals) brings a rock solid thump and nearly two decades of performing experience to the trio, informed by a wide spectrum of unique rhythmic and melodic sensibilities ranging from rockabilly to reggae to jazz. ​Returning to our “At the Gallery” series...

Explorations in the ARTS presents Willie E. Atkinson (vocalist) and The Transitional Jazz Quintet will present an evening of soulful ballads and up tempo jazz classics. This Poetry of Jazz concert should prove to be just the ticket for sharing a musical evening with your valentine! An extraordinarily smooth Jazz vocalist, Atkinson makes each of his performances a unique and unforgettable experience for his audience with his fluid interpretation of Jazz and Blues standards. Whether exploring the syncopated rhythms of a swinging tune or telling the story of a lonesome, wanting heart, he offers a fresh approach and seizes every moment to make the songs his own. Renowned Jazz critic Peter Ingram, CVNC Online Arts Journal in North Carolina, begins his jazz review of a recent concert stated, “They (the audience) basked in the “jazz poetry” interpretations that vocalist Willie Atkinson gave to mostly swing era standards.” And ends with… “He certainly inspired the audience to standing ovations at this concert!” The Transitional Jazz Quintet is: Stephen Anderson, UNC Chapel Hill, piano; Phil Owens, New Bern, guitar; Doug Trammel, Myrtle Beach, bass; Michael Hanson, Rocky Point, percussion; and Jeff Bair, East Carolina University, saxophone. Guest jazz vocalist is Liz Pina of Wilmington, NC.
