Carolina Covers: Mary Johnson Rockers performs "You Must Build a Fire"

Posted by on Sat, Jul 20, 2013 at 6:26 PM

Hank Williams set one of many blueprints for singing sad songs with "Moanin' The Blues." When I first saw Mary Johnson Rockers sitting on a stage at the Shakori Hills Songwriter Circle, she was surrounded by several local Americana artists. Her delivery put her apart: With a touch of twang above all, she was "Moanin' The Blues" like many of her counterparts couldn't.

Though Johnson Rockers and her band The Spark do not perform too often, they present well-conceived arrangements that complement Johnson Rockers perfectly. Today, the group plays Saxapahaw's outdoor stage at the weekly farmers market performance series. The music runs from 6–8 p.m. Be sure to see the swan.
