Eddie & Agnes “The Civil Wars” Concerts Postponed

Ticket Alternative sent out this message a couple hours ago…

We’re sorry to announce The Civil Wars shows, originally scheduled for October 9th and 10th at Presser Hall at Agnes Scott, have been postponed.

The band hopes to reschedule the dates for early December, but have not confirmed this at time of writing.

We will update you as soon as we have more information about the new dates, and let you know about a refund if you are unable to attend the rescheduled shows.

The band’s management has issued the following statement – “Unfortunately, John Paul of The Civil Wars has no voice and consequently the band needs to postpone the upcoming shows in Knoxville and Atlanta. Rescheduled dates will be announced next week, hopefully taking place in December 2011. All tickets will be honored, unless a refund is requested. Our sincere apologies and deep regrets for any disappointment and inconvenience this causes for any of you.”

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

If you have any additional questions at this time, please contact us at (877) 725-8849

Thanks,

Eddie & Agnes presents The Blind Boys of Alabama

We couldn’t be prouder, nor more excited than to announce that The Blind Boys of Alabama will take the stage at Presser Hall at Agnes Scott on October 22nd, as part of the Eddie & Agnes concert series.

Plain and simple–this is the kind of act for which this series was formed.

From the band’s website:

” Celebrated by The Grammys and The National Endowment for the Arts with Lifetime Achievement Awards, inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, sung for two presidents in the White House and winners of five Grammy® Awards, they have attained the highest levels of achievement in a career that spans over 70 years and shows no signs of diminishing. Longevity and major awards aside, The Blind Boys have earned praise for their remarkable interpretations of everything from traditional gospel favorites to contemporary spiritual material by acclaimed songwriters such as Curtis Mayfield, Ben Harper, Eric Clapton, Prince and Tom Waits. Their performances have been experienced by millions on The Tonight Show, Late Night with David Letterman, the Grammy® Awards telecast, 60 Minutes, and on their own holiday PBS Special. The Blind Boys’ live shows are roof- raising musical events that appeal to audiences of all cultures, as evidenced by an international itinerary that has taken them to virtually every continent.”

Tickets available through the Eddie’s Attic website.

Eddie & Agnes Bringing The Flatlanders to Agnes Scott

From Daren Wang’s Verb.org

It’s been quite a while since we’ve rolled out a new Eddie & Agnes concert, but we’ve just scheduled a great one for March 25th at Presser Hall on the Agnes Scott Campus.

The Flatlanders are Butch Hancock, Joe Ely, and Jimmy Dale Gilmore: Each of them stand as a legend in the Texas songwriting world. I would call them a Tejas songwriting supergroup, but I’ve always thought a “supergroup” is something formed after the members are already famous, and these guys have been playing together for over three decades.

So come out for this great show. Tickets just went on sale today.

First Eddie & Agnes Concert: George Winston

Daren Wang just announced – via Twitter – that the first Eddie & Agnes concert at Presser Hall will be none other than pianist-superstar George Winston.

1st Eddie & Agnes show-2/23. GEORGE WINSTON plays from seasonal albums, N.O. R&B, stride piano & from LOVE WILL COME, MUSIC OF V. Guaraldi

So maybe I spoke too soon (or too generally) when I said the concerts would “all rock”, but that’s still a pretty good get and should fill up the space quite nicely!
