Charly Lowry & Friends

Sunday, November 10, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
  • This event has passed.

Charly Lowry is a singer-songwriter from North Carolina with Native American roots from the dark swamps of Robeson County. For over a decade, Charly has attained regional and national success as both a solo artist and lead singer of spiritual rock and soul band, Dark Water Rising. In summer of 2019, she joined forces with a talented ensemble of musicians to provide the score for the outdoor drama Strike at the Wind, a tale of the legendary Tuscarora outlaw Henry Berry Lowrie. The band’s style of combining storytelling and music is a reflection of the strong tradition of music and oral/family traditions that are rooted in many of the communities from Robeson and Hoke Counties. The ensemble features Aaron Locklear (drums), Alexis Raeana (vocals), Kyng Bea (vocals, keys), Zackary Hargett (bass guitar), and Tyrek Hearon (guitar). They recently performed at the North Carolina Governor’s Mansion as part of the Come Hear NC program.

This year’s Music of the Carolinas series is highlighting Millennial Traditional Artists from a new project from the Folklife Program of the North Carolina Arts Council. This directory highlights next generation traditional artists from the mountains, Piedmont, and coastal plains of North Carolina.

As a student at UNC-Chapel Hill, Lowry was a lead singer for Mr. Coffee and the Creamers, a Motown/soul cover band that performed throughout the Triangle region of NC. Lowry’s experience as a lead singer for Mr. Coffee and the Creamers served as a catalyst for her to begin the journey of living as a musician.

For over a decade, Lowry has attained regional and national success as both a solo artist and lead singer of spiritual rock and soul band, Dark Water Rising.  In addition to performing with Dark Water Rising and The Ulali Project (a reincarnation of the world-famous First Nations female a cappella group, Ulali) she often shares the stage with the British funk/soul band The New Mastersounds. In 2004, Lowry had the opportunity to compete on the wildly popular television show, American Idol. She ventured through several rounds of auditions to land a Semi-Finalist spot (Top 32).
