Music, Food and Brews in Brevard's Backyard

Mary Lucey & Friends with Billy Cardine and Anya Hinkle

Tuesday, July 30
Doors: 4pm // Show: 6:30pm
$12 to $20
Launched in August of 2020, Tuesday Casual Collaborations at 185 King Street has become a cornerstone of the vibrant Brevard music community. Every week Travis Book assembles a unique group of musicians for a one-time-only show, drawing on his vast network of friends and growing repertoire of musical styles. From Bluegrass to Blues, Songwriter to Americana, Country to Funk, Travis and his ever-evolving cast of local and national (even international) musicians consistently hit the sweet spot between preparation and spontaneity.

This week Travis is on the road so he is handing hosting duties over to Mary Lucey.  Mary Lucey is a talented vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter. Her clear and soulful vocals are instantly recognizable. As a bass player, she held down the rhythm for the band she cofounded, The Biscuit Burners, as well as with the all female group, Uncle Earl.  Over the last several years, she has been showcasing clawhammer banjo as her new rhythmic muse with projects such as Lovers Leap and The Billy Sea. Recognized for her songwriting at Merlefest, Mary continues to draw people into her original songs with a lyrical style, haunting in its honesty.  She has played venues such as The Kennedy Center, Ryman Auditorium, Bonnaroo, Merlefest and Rockygrass.  Her music has been featured on BBC World tv’s Destination Music and PBS’s Roadtrip Nation, Mountain Stage and Woodsong’s Radio Hour.  Mary will be joined by Billy Cardine and Anya Hinkle.  This trio has been collaborating under the title Tanasi.  Tanasi’s world-inspired mountain music taps into the similarities of roots artists across the globe and helps craft it into a sound that has a way of seeping into those deep parts of your heart, bringing it home.  This collaboration of three celebrated Asheville, NC-area roots artists, features the tight sister harmonies of MerleFest-winning songwriter Anya Hinkle and Mary Lucey (Biscuit Burners, Uncle Earl) with the inimitable dobro musings of Billy Cardine, who after his collaboration with Edgar Meyer’s Porous Borders of music, Jerry Douglas said “I couldn’t have picked a better example of where the Dobro is now or what the possibilities are with the instrument.”  Members of the trio have toured the world over from Japan to India to Europe and across the US at festivals such as Bonnaroo, Rockygrass and Merlefest and on stages such as The Ryman Auditorium, The Kennedy Center and Carnegie Hall.
