Alice Gerrard CD release 

When: Sun., May 12, 7 p.m. 2013
Price: $8-16

When Alice Gerrard sings, the world around her voice seems to freeze, leaving only the sound of her lonesome burl to cut exquisite lines through space and time. She's been applying that mesmerizing tool to bluegrass and old-time music for more than four decades, but Gerrard, who lives in Durham, seems primed for reinvention right now. She recently launched a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund Bittersweet, her first-ever album of original tunes, with the assistance of songwriters and Gerrard acolytes such as Laurelyn Dossett. This show marks the end of that campaign and the lead-up to the album's release. She's also been working with members of Hiss Golden Messenger and Megafaun, acts that cherish and translate the lessons Gerrard's revealed through her recordings with Tommy Jarrell, Hazel Dickens, Mike Seeger and many others. —Grayson Currin
