In the Crown with Caroline Cotter!
Following a sold-out release show for album Not What I Seem last April, Abigail Dowd and Jason Duff returning to The Crown with new songs and stories from the road. They will be joined by Caroline Cotter, a world traveling songwriter whose songs bridge the English folk music tradition with a contemporary Americana perspective. Abigail and Caroline met through music, but the two have crossed many of the same paths including Portland, Maine, the city that they both launched off from to pursue careers in music, and Colorado where they retreat along the St. Vrain River each August to recharge and reconnect. They’re sure to bring the magic of these places to the stage for this special show.

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 “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…Here, Dowd steps outside her own experiences to inhabit characters, and catapults past the personal to the universal.” Now back home, the Greensboro-based duo are currently working on their third album, this time with Grammy nominated mixer/producer/engineer Jason Richmond (Steep Canyon Rangers, Dom Flemons).
