Brandi Carlile to Grace DCA stage on Aug 22

Contemporary folk-rock singer Brandi Carlile will grace the Door Community Auditorium stage with her dynamic presence on Sunday, August 22.

Since her major-label debut in 2005, Brandi Carlile’s career has exploded on the folk-rock scene. Fans adore her throaty, passionate voice and her charming, relatable songwriting style. The twenty-nine year old from Ravensdale, WA, has collaborated with several notable musicians, among them Sir Elton John, who says of Carlile, “Brandi has an amazing voice. She’s a great songwriter and has a tremendous career ahead of her.” Sheryl Crow also commented on Carlile’s talent. “She has the most amazing voice I may have ever heard. Soulful. Country. Perfect in every way – and propelled by taste.”

Carlile has released three albums to date, Brandi Carlile (2005), The Story (2007), and Give Up The Ghost (2009), all of which have been met with an overwhelmingly positive response from fans and critics alike.
Carlile’s voice is truly unique, standing out from all of the other female voices on the music scene today. Her tone has been compared to a mix of music industry greats Patsy Cline and Janis Joplin. A performance by Carlile is one that will leave her audience with chills and warm hearts all at the same time.

Tickets for this performance are selling quickly, as our Gold Circle seating is already sold out. Carlile’s performance set for August 21 at Lake Superior Big Top Chautauqua in Bayfield, WI, has completely sold out as well. Terry Meyer-Matier, Executive Director of Big Top Chautauqua, is thrilled to have Brandi Carlile back this year. Meyer-Matier spoke of their providence in acquiring Carlile, “We had hired The Indigo Girls for a performance last year. We didn't know that they were planning on bringing their own opening act, so a couple months out they called and said the opener was Brandi Carlile! We were thrilled, because she was also on our wish list. Many people at the performance hadn't heard of Brandi yet, but she was all the buzz after her performance. So we definitely had to bring her back.”

Underwriting for this performance was generously provided by Main Street Market in Egg Harbor, WI.
Brandi Carlile is in concert at 8:00 p.m. Sunday, August 22, at Door Community Auditorium, 3926 State 42, Fish Creek. Tickets are $30-$44 and can be reserved by visiting the auditorium box office, calling the box office at 868-2728, or ordering online at .
