The Gage Hall Coffeehouse
Saturday, April 19, 7:30 PM
featuring Lee Barbour and Barrett Smith
with special guest Vikki Matsis
Back by popular demand on Saturday, April 19 at 7:30 pm, the 2013-14 Gage Hall Coffeehouse series will feature an evening of great music by guitarists Lee Barbour and Barrett Smith. Frequently mistaken for brothers, Lee and Barrett formed a musical kinship that has ebbed and flowed over the years as both pursued their own unique musical paths. Barrett has toured the world playing a mix of Bluegrass, Folk and Alt-Country with a variety of artists, while Lee has found his voice in several jazz idioms, recording with Miles Davis' first guitar player, Joe Beck, and teaching jazz guitar at the College of Charleston and the NYC Guitar School. When they play together, it's a mix of their favorite songs and genres and a reunion of two friends, making music the way they always have. Also appearing with Lee and Barrett on April 19 will be Vikki Matsis, a local singer songwriter who released her first EP of original music this past December titled, “When Dusk Meets Dawn”. Vikki has been singing locally in bars, restaurants and listening rooms all over Charleston for the past several years. A College of Charleston graduate, she took a long break after getting a science degree and is now back in school to learn the amazingly confounding art of jazz piano. Vikki currently plays in a jazz combo and is happy to live in a city that supports original live music. Be prepared for some great music on April 19. Don’t miss it!
