Charly Lowry & Friends
Sunday, November 10, 2019 – 3:00pm to 4:00pm
Charly Lowry is a singer-songwriter from North Carolina with Native American roots from the dark swamps of Robeson County. For over a decade, Charly has attained regional and national success as both a solo artist and lead singer of spiritual rock and soul band, Dark Water Rising. In summer of 2019, she joined forces with a talented ensemble of musicians to provide the score for the outdoor drama Strike at the Wind, a tale of the legendary Tuscarora outlaw Henry Berry Lowrie. The band’s style of combining storytelling and music is a reflection of the strong tradition of music and oral/family traditions that are rooted in many of the communities from Robeson and Hoke Counties. The ensemble features Aaron Locklear (drums), Alexis Raeana (vocals), Kyng Bea (vocals, keys), Shawn McNeill (guitar, sax, banjo, vocals), Zackary Hargett (bass guitar), and Jonathon Locklear (guitar). They recently performed at the North Carolina Governor’s Mansion as part of the Come Hear NC program.
