On Friday, January 27 at 7:00 pm The Whiskey Charmers will perform as part of the Carnegie Concert Series at the Bryan Main Library.
The Whiskey Charmers is a Detroit-based Americana band led by Carrie Shepard and Lawrence Daversa. Fans have often compared their sound to the feeling of riding in the middle of the desert with the top down. They are currently recording their second album to be released this spring. Their debut self-titled album has received airplay and excellent reviews in the U.S. and abroad and was nominated for a Detroit Music Award for Outstanding Americana Recording. Vickye Fisher of For the Country Record says “If you were wondering where the roots and grit of country music had gone, you’ll find it in this album. There is a fulfilling darkness and aching quality about this record that falls in line with the genre at its best”. They have been included as one of the 15 best new bands in Detroit by the Detroit Metro Times who also listed Shepard as Best Singer/Songwriter of 2016.

The Carnegie Concert Series was created by Williams County Public Library as a way to showcase newer talent, both local and nationwide.
The series has already featured talented musicians such as Jason Ropp, Whitney Mann, Andrew Ellis, and the Joe Vasquez Band. These events have limited seating so the library encourages attendees to arrive early. Doors will open half an hour before each show at 6:30 p.m. and will lock at 7:00 pm out of courtesy to the performer. All of the concerts are free to the public and are funded through donations.
The concert will take place in the Carnegie area of the Main Library. Additional acts in the Carnegie Concert Series will be added as they become available. Interested performers should email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the library 419-636-6734 Ext. 239.The Bryan Main Library is located at 107 E. High Street.
