Elizabeth Cook was introduced to a musical life at an early age - her mother and father performed in honky-tonks in Florida. She has collaborated with a who's who of singer-songwriters: John Prine, Jason Isbell, Steve Earle, Todd Snider, Rodney Crowell, Buddy Miller and Dwight Yoakam.
She's appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman five times, performed over 400 times on the Grand Ole Opry, was a 4-time Americana Awards nominee in 2010 and even voices a character on Adult Swim's Squidbillies.
Cook also hosts a beloved radio show on SiriusXM's Outlaw Country channel, called Apron Strings, an outlet that affords her the freedom play music she loves - and speak her mind.
And speak her mind she does, as anyone who has seen her humor shine through, in such off the wall venues such as the Outlaw Country Cruise where she judged the shipboard Beard Contest along with fellow travelers Sarah Gayle Meech and Rosie Flores. She pulled no punches on that stage, and the audience was completely taken with her unassuming zingers as she reduced the macho men to marshmallows.
As for her last album: “If anything, Exodus is a pledge of allegiance for the bad girls and the Homecoming Queens who got caught in a scandal. It’s a bill of rights, and a testimony for those good girls who got away with more than they should have."
Elizabeth appears solo in this Sept. 22 performance.
DEAD ROCK WEST
Vocalist Cindy Wasserman and singer and guitarist Frank Lee Drennen are Dead Rock West. They specialize in a kind of jangly west coast alt country that slides into pop and punk territory at times, a bit like a clever cross between the Gram Parsons version of the Byrds and L.A.'s X.
2011's Bright Morning Stars saw the duo tackle a set of spiritually oriented tunes, many of which were traditional, and in 2015 they dropped the spirited It's Everly Time!, a salute to the Everly Brothers.
The duo tapped John Doe to produce their next studio long-player, 2017's Omnivore-issued More Love.
They will perform as a duo on Sept. 22.
Doors open at 6:45 pm, music at 8 pm
