A couple of years ago, after leaving her mark in Nashville, Tennessee, Winston-Salem native singer/songwriter Sarah Siskind relocated to the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. That year she wrote all the songs on her EP In the Mountains, sang several support dates for Bonnie Raitt, and Time Magazine called her “one of our favorite 5 voices” at SXSW in Austin, Texas. Sarah’s songs are heavily featured on ABC’s hit TV show Nashville.

Triad Arts Weekend: May 30, 2014

“She absolutely knocks me out”, and “I Love her songwriting”. That’s exactly how the Triad Arts team feels about Winston-Salem native, singer/songwriter Sarah Siskind, but, turns out we stole those two quotes of high praise from legendary singer Bonnie Raitt and Amy Grant. After leaving her mark in Nashville, Sarah calls the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia home these days and she’ll be coming down the mountain when she comes to Reynolda House next week. Then the Charlotte-based band Amigo has been carving out a little slice of heaven there for the past few years with their eclectic country/punk/East Texas, genre-busting sound. It’s just like American Songwriter Magazine says: There is no gimmick here: Amigo is the real thing. Eddie Garcia peaks behind the curtain—just in case—with Amigo singer, songwriter, and guitarist Slade Baird. Second Spring Arts is proving that life after 60 gets better and better when you get up the gumption to try something new, and Music for a Sunday Evening in the Park is bringing new outdoor concerts to a different Greensboro park every Sunday all summer long.
