This month's feature will be LISA FERRARO AND ERIKA LUCKETT. Fusing earthiness with the transcendent, Lisa and Erika give birth to music born of the earth and destined for the heavens. These two extraordinarily talented artists are far more than the sum of their parts and the music they create offers a feast of Sonic Nourishment. Fire and honey. Lightning and gold. Their combined voices blend so seamlessly we forget there are two of them, and Erika’s multi-faceted guitar playing is so versatile that one instrument becomes a funk band or a trio of flamenco playing gypsies. Their unique blend of world inspired, jazz infused, heart opening music has led them on performances around the world - the 2009 Parliament of World’s Religions in Melbourne, Australia; collaborating with Shaik Kabir Helminski and Turkish musicians in Istanbul; the National Women’s Music Festival. Together, these two artists (dubbed “The Ambassadors of Kindness”) offer a powerful bolt of goodness. Their stunning level of artistry, passion and intelligence come together to create a transformative musical experience. <www.lisaanderika.com>AND...the heart and soul of Third Thursday: YOU, either as performer or audience member.
