The Ghostlight Concerts with Abigail Dowd with support by Carrie Morgan

Ghostlights are a tradition almost as old as theatre itself – they light the stages when there are no performers, keeping the spirit of the theatre alive. After six months of just our ghostlight, we are thrilled to replace it with live performances on the Carolina Theatre stage! Seating will be available, but will be limited to 25 guests for each show, per government mandates. All guests will be asked to sign a liability waiver, and wear a face covering unless seated in the Auditorium.

Abigail Dowd and Jason Duff return for an intimate show at the Carolina Theatre. In 2019,  they kicked off a tour of their album Not What I Seem with a  sold out release show here at The Crown. Now they are back with new songs and stories, including songs from their upcoming album Beautiful Day. They are joined by Carrie Morgan, a Greensboro-based songwriter who has recently released her debut album Weeping Willow.

Tickets are $20 plus 6.75% NC Sales tax.

Abigail Dowd is a singer/songwriter/guitarist known for her storytelling and command of an audience. She has been touted as one of the Piedmont’s most original voices and “a writer of the highest caliber” (All Scene Eye). Her soulful voice and unique classical guitar style combined with the edgy bass of Jason Duff caught the attention of Acoustic Guitar Magazine, which described their latest album Not What I Seem as having “the guitar-driven introspective folk of the 1970s [as] a touchstone, but so are blues and roots rock ’n’ roll.”  The Greensboro-based duo are soon to release their third album Beautiful Day, produced and engineered by Grammy-nominated Jason Richmond (Steep Canyon Rangers, Don Flemons).

Singer-songwriter Carrie Morgan was born in the swamplands of northeastern North Carolina, where solid ground is scarce but inspiring beauty is unbound. So, she dug her roots deep into those muddy waters and her songs eventually blossomed into folk music with a touch of the Carolina blues. She now lives, writes and sings in Greensboro, where she recently released an album, Weeping Willow. Carrie’s songs “tend to use imagery from nature – stars, ocean, sand, wind – to sketch out sentiments of wonder at the cosmos and our place in it, but beyond that they’re also about love and unity… She manages to take something that’s seemingly slight and find surprising weight to it” (YES! Weekly).

The front doors will open 30 minutes prior to scheduled curtain time. Please bring your email receipt for entry, and your Waiver of Liability with you.

Staff will greet you inside the Lobby doors (with face coverings). Temperatures may be taken at this time.

Please maintain social distancing at all times. This is a general admission show, and with only 25 tickets available and over 700 seats downstairs to choose from, we will not be blocking off seats, but we do require you to leave two empty rows and at least three empty seats between parties.
