Saturday, Jan. 16

Charity Nuse and Claire Stuczynski are musical powerhouses in their own rights: Both are bold, beyond talented, and highly engaging – the kinds of artists that make quick fans out of most listeners.

To see those two on the same bill, then, would surely be a very good thing. And that’s what’s happening on Saturday, Jan. 16 at the Kings Rook Club. And, it’s a free show for members, to boot.

First off, the talented Stuczynski, a longtime local favorite of solo acoustic fans, will take the stage, warming up the crowd (and man, she will) for the night’s featured performance by Charity Nuse & The Drive.

“Philosoulful country blues that funks and rolls” is how Charity Nuse & The Drive describes itself.

That’s the band in which Nuse (also a long-celebrated talent in the region’s live music scene) has been displaying her serious chops since the recent disbanding of area roots-jam masters Big Leg Emma.

That sounds like something to get down to, alright. – Ryan Smith
