SLO Folks Presents: Christie Lenée
Saturday, April 8th @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Indoor show. Doors open at 6:30, show starts at 7:30
A Tampa native and North Carolina resident, Lenée took First Place at the International Fingerstyle Guitar Championship in 2017, was voted Acoustic Guitarist of the Year by England’s Music Radar in 2019, and was named one of the “Best Acoustic Guitarists in the World Right Now” by Guitar World Magazine in 2020. Even though her last release, Circle Round the Sun, was a best-of, her new record, Coming Alive, with its iconic guitar hooks and powerhouse vocal performances feels like a giant leap forward. And that jump was made with eyes wide open.
At the pinnacle of her career so far, Lenée has been voraciously praised by Guitar Player Magazine, Acoustic Guitar Magazine, and Guitar World shared stages with exalted musicians such as Tommy Emmanuel, Tim Reynolds (Dave Matthews Band), Amy Ray (Indigo Girls), and Melissa Etheridge, and has stacked up endorsements from guitar companies like Martin, Luna, Irvin, and Veillette, alongside her signature string set via Savarez Strings. With a showcase slot at 2022’s AmericanaFest and a new album in hand, she’s ready to shake off the past and come alive again – right on time.
This will surely be a show to remember!
