From Local Sources

JASPER — Farewell Angelina will perform at the Astra Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

Named after a haunting Bob Dylan song, Farewell Angelina is an all-female country group with powerhouse vocalists, dynamic songwriters and multi-instrumentalists. Their blend of heart-stopping harmonies over blazing double violins and guitars has earned soaring praise. Roughstock calls them a “Superstar Act … with Killer Songs.” Rolling Stone says, “Wickedly smart songwriting delivered with a healthy dash of sass.”

A band of longtime friends, the women met pursuing their dreams in Nashville, Tennessee. The women had admired one another while building successful solo careers — touring and recording with top artists, and writing songs for some of country music’s biggest hitmakers. When they heard their voices together for the first time, they couldn’t wait to take their show on the road. Major opportunities soon followed, including singing the National Anthem for Thursday Night Prime Time Football and performing at the Unbridled Eve Gala for the Kentucky Derby and Taste of Country’s Country Jam Festival.

The relationship Farewell Angelina they shares with fans won the group the fan-voted “Hot Seat” in the Taste of Country 2017 “RISERS” Program by more than 20,000 votes. The group also has been named among Rolling Stone’s “New Artists You Need To Know” and Roughstock’s “Ones to Watch,” with a tour schedule to match. The women have traveled across the country performing opening shows for the likes of Kenny Chesney, Maroon 5, Old Dominion, Frankie Ballard, Jake Owen, Billy Currington, Trace Adkins and the Bacon Brothers.

The group’s self-titled EP is digitally available on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify and Amazon. The women are in the process of writing and recording new music for a fall release.

Tickets for Friday’s show — priced at $25 for adults and $20 or students and children — are available by visiting www.jasperarts.org or by calling 812-482-3070. Group rates are available.
