Pieta Brown and Sean Rowe seem to be the perfect long-lost touring duo. Their independent lyrics about love and nature effortlessly complement each other, creating a lush and warm soundscape on the live stage. Brown’s slightly country-tinged folk speaks of travel and dreams while Rowe’s bluesy rock paints scenes of wilderness and solitude. Their lyrical inspiration comes from their own experiences; Brown toured extensively, opening for Mark Knopfler and Rowe spent 24 days out in nature, foraging for food and developing new music material.
The two perform on the Cedar Cultural Center’s stage as the cap on Give to the Max Day. The Cedar operates as a non-profit organization that supports local artists and promotes inter-cultural endeavors. To continue this mission, the venue hosts an all-day annual fundraiser during which supporters can donate to the arts scene. So stop by the Cedar to enjoy some live music and to support an important and creative cause. Give to the Max: all day. Pieta Brown and Sean Rowe: 7:30 p.m. (doors at 7 p.m.), $15. —RO
