Portland’s root country sweetheart’s Copper and Coal are hitting Seattle on October 10! Leslie Beia and Carra Stasney’s tight harmonies, soaring pedal steel, flourishing fiddle, and deep respect for the country tradition of the 40’s and 50’s make these vintage songbirds the ladies to listen to!
Show Details: Thursday, October 10 The Little Red Hen 7115 Woodlawn Ave. NE., Seattle Showtime at 9pm, $3 Cover MORE INFO: It’s a rare band that transcends its time and place to sound totally at home in another era. But when you listen to the debut album from Portland, Oregon’s vintage country songstresses Copper & Coal, you just might swear you’re hearing it through a jukebox in a roadside diner, somewhere off Route 66 in the 1950s.
A powerhouse collaboration between singers Carra Stasney and Leslie Beia – one brunette and one redhead, both Michiganders packing elegantly expressive pipes, and both nearly 6 feet tall – Copper & Coal captures the spirit of classic country duos with a contemporary West Coast sensibility. On their album, Carra and Leslie’s voice swing and sway in tight harmony over soaring steel guitar lines and old-school country fiddling. Their songwriting sounds freshly conversational even as it saunters its way through the familiar territory of honky-tonk, heartache, and the man who done you wrong. Produced by Portland roots icon Caleb Klauder (of Foghorn Stringband and the Caleb Klauder Country Band), the album features stellar guest artists on mandolin, fiddle, pedal steel, dobro, even Cajun accordion from master musician Jesse Lege.
