The Harbor Center in Slidell invites you to The Lobby Lounge on Thursday, September 23, 2021 for the next "Up Close and Musical" concert with Ghalia Volt.
Having joined with the cream of the US roots scene for two acclaimed albums, 2017’s Let The Demons Out and 2019’s Mississppi Blend, Volt’s rebirth as a solo performer--like many artists, due to Covid--wasn’t a decision made lightly. But if an apprenticeship busking in her native Brussels taught Volt anything, it’s that she already had everything she needed to make magic. “In March, I started playing on a real drum set,” she recalls. “Playing a kick, snare and hi-hat plus a tambourine with my two feet, while playing slide/guitar and singing at the same time.”
After road-testing the new format at shows across Mississippi, Volt realised that one was the magic number. In August, she committed to the project, embarking on a month-long Amtrak train trip that became an intensive writing session, the shifting landscapes beyond the window inspiring her pen to scratch as never before.
The Lobby Lounge features nationally touring acts throughout the year, focusing on artists from the worlds of indie rock, folk, country, jazz, blues and more, performances will be acoustic or lightly amplified, in a Bohemian-style, smoke-free venue. Concerts are 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. with doors opening at 6:30 p.m.
