Live Music in Downtown Covington Friday Night!

BandColThe Sunset at the Landing Concert Series starts back up this year with two fantastic acts; Beth Patterson Trio with The Bloomin’ Onions. Beth Patterson (top left) from Lafayette is a world renown multi-instrumental musician, foremost a player of the Irish bouzoukis. She integrates her quirky, progressive sound with Celtic music and other ethnic styles that she has picked up around the world, such as West African, Indian, Indonesian and Caribbean. The Bloomin’ Onions (top right, photo by Katie Dee Photography) is a local folk band with Mae Carter on vocals, Chris Lenox and Sean Stair on guitar, mandolin and vocals.

St. John’s Coffeehouse will also have live music this Friday with the enriching sounds of Sonic Migration (bottom left). Dave Easley and Cassie Krebs’ performances may migrate from Brazil to the Asian sub-continent, from the Grateful Dead to classic jazz standards and Beatles tunes, or to eclectic originals that don’t seem out of place with any of these styles or groups.

Paula & the Pontiacs (Paula Rangell, bottom right) will grace the stage of Columbia Street Rock N Blues Friday night as well. A New Orleans native, Paula is a small, power packed woman who wails on the alto saxophone and harmonica then belts out the lead vocals. This New Orleans legend offers a joy ride with some “gut-bucket” blues, classic R&B and soulful originals.
