Brandi Carlile in Bellingham, Seattle
One of the most consistently talented and fresh artists on the music scene today is Seattle-based singer/songwriter Brandi Carlile whose concerts are about as close to perfect as a live performance can ever be. Between Carlile’s amazing presence and the energy that she exchanges with her audience, every show is a masterpiece of its own.
It’s not quite the same as being there in person but her new album Live at Benaroya Hall with the Seattle Symphony is an impressive documentation of the experience nonetheless and definitely a collection of music well worth having. Once you listen to it, you’ll be more eager than ever to attend a show in person.
Carlile is currently out on the road visiting such places as Bend, Oregon; Gulf Shores, AL; and Columbus, OH. It’ll be a while before she gets back to the Seattle area but it will be worth the wait…as long as you make sure to get your tickets in advance. Brandi Carlile will play the Mount Baker Theater up in Bellingham on Thursday, July 28 – tickets go onsale through STG Presents and Tickets.com on Friday, May 6.
