Annie Sellick and Pat Bergeson – Sunday June 11
Season Tickets for all 5 Black Cat Concert Series music events are $90.
Nashville-native dread-locked jazz-vocalist Annie Sellick has performed and recorded with most of her heroes (including Joey DeFrancesco, Bela Fleck and Mark O’ Connor), enjoyed stardom in her hometown and toured nationally and internationally. But perhaps her best quality is the organic sincerity she exudes from the stage, hooking an audience into the stories of the songs she sings.
Rounding out the duo, Annie’s husband is as versatile a harmonica player as he is a guitarist. Pat Bergeson moved to Nashville upon Chet Atkins’ request to join his band and has performed and recorded with a long list of chart toppers like Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash and Michael McDonald, not to mention tours with cult favorites Lyle Lovett, Madeleine Peyroux.
Together, Annie and Pat cover much musical ground with jazz standards, soulful originals and cabaret classics. The pair brings a high level of skill, confidence, ease and charm to each show gaining fans and followers wherever they perform. The music is jazz-based with acoustic guitars, harmonica and some percussion but draws upon many styles creating a show that grooves, soothes and tells stories. The pair toured with Tommy Emmanuel in 2015 and 2016.
Annie Sellick may be compared to the greats – “Ella’s playfulness, Carmen’s attitude, Betty’s instincts and Anita’s flair…” (Greg Lee, WMOT jazz radio). But, she is unequivocally and undeniably an original. Don’t let her southern drawl, as sweet as biscuits n’ honey, cause you to make assumptions, because there is nothing shy or demure about Ms. Sellick’s control – of the stage, the music, her sound, and her audience.
