Tuesday, Jan. 17

Eilen Jewell comes to the Berkeley Cafe Tuesday for an evening of Americana, Blues and Country and Honky Tonk. Nationally and internationally acclaimed, Eilen blends a trio of genres under the country brand and yet does it with such skill and talent, you would never know the difference -- until she starts playing a cover song. This woman is one of the shining stars of talent out there and can truly be considered as making her own path. The music is innovative, provoking and comfortable all at the same time. This is a rare chance to get a great talent here in Raleigh. (Photo Courtesy of Mountain Stages)
