Tara Nevins at the Double Door Inn tonight (12/6/2012)

Posted By on Thu, Dec 6, 2012 at 8:53 AM

Multi-instrumentalist and singer Tara Nevins, a founding member of Donna the Buffalo, has such an earthy sense of American roots music that she can transport listeners to the hills and backwoods of Appalachia simply with her plaintive, right off the front porch voice. Nevins' recent solo album, Wood and Stone, evokes an era gone by, but it's also hauntingly fresh enough to sweep up a few more believers. The record, her first solo outing since 1999, is admittedly for Nevins a very personal, autobiographical work, and for the listener a country-folk gem stitched with touches of Cajun. Her singing, fiddle and guitar playing is heartening for those who want traditional music of the South lingering in the fields, in the rural hinterlands, as well as its burgeoning cities. $12. Dec. 6, 9 p.m. Double Door Inn, 1218 Charlottetowne Ave. 704-376-1446.
