Route 60 Saturday Night
March 21, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$5
Our Saturday, March 21, show starts our sixth season with guest sets by veteran West Virginia blues star Chris Sutton and exciting new singer-songwriter Stacee Lawson Stanley. The monthly 90-minute music variety show begins at 7 p.m. at Route 60 Music Co., 60 Peyton St., Barboursville. Hosted by Michelle Lewis, the show, which takes the stage on the third Saturday night of each month, features The 1937 Flood as the house band. In addition, each month’s show features new and established musical acts as guest artists.
Here are the headliners for the upcoming show:
— Stacee Lawson Stanley, born and raised in Logan WV and now a transplant in Ohio, is no stranger to the music scene. Starting off in school choirs to secretly singing karaoke in college and moving on up to songwriting, it is a passion that she doesn’t plan on giving up soon. She was also the front woman to her long-time band Under Social, and Luna Park. Getting back to her acoustic roots she just released the first single “Angels,” that will be on an upcoming EP.
— Chris Sutton has been playing his blues and roots songs form his home in West Virginia around the region and all the way to Italy, India and Nepal for the past decade. He is a talented songwriter, a powerful singer and a versatile guitar player. He was befriended by and mentored by the late great West Virginia bluesman Nat Reese and was fortunate enough to play with him many times during the past decade. Chris completed his first official colletion of songs back in 2013 at the legendary Sun Studios in Memphis. “The Sun Studio Recordings” is Chris alone with his guitar playing the 18 best songs of his blues and roots catalog and it has been very well received. He’s also appeared often in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN.
Admission to the show is $5 and this month all proceeds will be donated to support the good work of ECCHO food bank, 1038 Smith Street, Milton, WV.
