Once a month the Maizie Harris Jesse Theater hosts rising stars in the songwriting world from both near and far. Season 3 the series starts Saturday November 4th featuring Spike McGuire and Rachael McElhiney.
We have all come to know Spike McGuire as the Executive Director of Brewery Arts Center, but before he landed in Carson City he toured the world performing his original songs. Earlier this year Spike recived a grant from Nevada Arts Council and National Endowment For The Arts to record a live solo album. The record officially releases on Nevada Day and this is one of six release shows taking place at historic venues across the state.
Multi-instrumentalist Rachael McElhiney burst on to the folk scene with her band Buster Blue, garnering attention from Billboard as well as a coveted invitation to record a Daytrotter Session. After several more years tirelessly touring the west coast in her trio Failure Machine, she now performs solo as Rachbot. Whether singing a cappella or over the stark accompaniment of ukulele and baritone saxophone, Rachbot’s soulful voice takes command of any stage as she weaves stories of life, love, and lessons learned from her grandfather.
