Connecting Crossroads in North Carolina with Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR) and Laurelyn Dossett Comments
Last January, violinist and composer Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR) and North Carolina singer/songwriter Laurelyn Dossett travelled from the mountains to the coast, meeting with folks in a variety of communities, seeking stories to inspire a new collection of musical works that reflect the people and places of North Carolina. This fall, there will be a series of seven concerts around the state called Connecting Crossroads in North Carolina, culminating in a performance in Stewart Theatre on November 17.
DBR is a longtime favorite of Center Stage audiences, renowned for seamlessly blending funk, rock, hip-hop and classical music. Laurelyn Dossett brings the sound of southern folk music to this project; she is noted for years with the band Polecat Creek, her original music for Greensboro's Triad Stage, and her holiday song cycle, "The Gathering," commissioned by the North Carolina Symphony in 2011. Laurelyn wrote the title track for the most recent album by the Carolina Chocolate Drops, Leaving Eden, and received widespread acclaim for her 2012 protest song, "Vote Against Amendment One."
