Katie Beth & Luke Cerny
Saturday, August 26 at 9 p.m.
Every KatieBeth performance is a like a musical autobiography of KatieBeth the person. Start with her voice, a blend of rock and country—a style that pulls equally from her Wisconsin roots and her Tennessee years—then listen to her songs. The lyrics tell stories of heartbreak, redemption and hope. With every verse and chorus, KatieBeth unleashes the raw, uncensored emotion of someone who has learned life's lessons the hard way. But behind her amazing vocal range, and beneath her "take-me-as-I-am” attitude, lies an alluring vulnerability. KatieBeth is just as willing to love, as she is to kick ass. This contrast—this paradox—is who she is.
Hailing from a small town in Northeastern Wisconsin, Luke Cerny has been playing multiple instruments, singing and writing songs since a tender age. With deep roots in Americana, Luke’s eclectic fingerstyle and slide guitar playing, combined with soulful vocals, cover a wide variety of genres including blues, folk and country, as well as many other classic and contemporary styles.
