Crystal Bowersox returns to Thrasher
Crystal Bowersox’s rich amalgam of blues, country, folk and rock makes her one of the most dynamic young voices in music to come along in years. She will be making her second highly-anticipated appearance at the historic Thrasher Opera House in Green Lake on Saturday, February 27 at 7:30 p.m. Opening for Crystal will be Georgia based guitarist, songwriter, and singer - Marshall Ruffin.
Since finishing as runner up on a national music TV show, Crystal made her acting debut on a second season episode of Body of Proof, released two acclaimed cds, and has performed alongside everyone from Harry Connick Jr., Joe Cocker, and Alanis Morrisette, to Michael Franti, John Popper and BB King at venues and festivals around the country. There is a sincerity and authenticity about Crystal Bowersox that just can’t be manufactured. The same can be said about her musical prowess, which has all the markings of a creative force to reckon with who is in it for the long haul.
Until now, the world has witnessed only a portion of Crystal Bowersox’s talent, which was channeled through mainstream pop expectations on her debut release, Farmer’s Daughter. With the highly anticipated release of All That For This (2013), produced by Steve Berlin (Los Lobos, Sheryl Crow, John Lee Hooker, Raul Malo), Bowersox exposes a new dimension of her music. "There are definitely happier light-hearted moments on this record,” confides the 27-year-old Portland transport. "There are also touches of some of the darkest places and emotional states that I've been in my past. This album reveals a much more grateful and gracious side of me. It's the next chapter of my life.
Tickets for the concert are $25 and available at the Thrasher office, Horicon Bank (Green Lake); Pick N’ Save, Ripon Drug (Ripon); Twister (Princeton) or by calling (920) 294-4279. Online tickets available at www.thrasheroperahouse.com.
