Tim Sparks, Tim Carless, Lynn Blakey 

When: Wed., April 14, 9:30 p.m. 2010
Price: $5

Lynn Blakey's expressive, many-moods voice can make innocent bystanders stop in their tracks and bring grown men to tears. I have seen the statue-making, and I have been the misty-eyed. For me, it was her take on Townes Van Zandt's "Flying Shoes" on Glory Fountain's The Beauty of 23, although there have been many moving moments over her career as band founder, leader and member. Also on the bill is the virtuosic Tim Sparks, whose guitar work has the same effect as Blakey's vocals, and Chapel Hill singer/ songwriter Tim Carless, who could no doubt offer up his own persuasively atmospheric version of "Flying Shoes." —Rick Cornell
