  • The first of two Mystery Triennial Benefit Concerts, we are delighted to be hosting two of Athens' most talented singer-songwriters--Marty Winkler and Kate Morrissey--both of whom are known for their smart, literate writing, for their strong melodies and vocal acrobatics, and for both jumping and melding song traditions, from jazz to Americana, from classic pop to folk to cabaret. Each singer will each do a solo set, but they will also join forces for a few numbers that promise to be harmonic heaven.

    About the Performers:

    Kate Morrissey
    ...has traveled the country playing her jazz-spiced tunes, and in recent years has happily called Athens home.  She is perfectly at home behind her piano, but Morrissey is best known for her strong, almost acrobatic vocal style, according to one Flagpole reviewer.  Her music has been compared to that of other songwriters including Joni Mitchell, Regina Spektor and Cleo Lane. Morrissey's CDs include A Girl in Winter, Land!  and Nobody, too.

    For the Mystery Triennial show, Morrrissey will be playing with her band, which includes John Norris on drums and Roger Stahl on guitar.

    Marty Winkler
    ... is an Athens transplant from Nebraska (by way of Minneapolis and New York) whose eclectic songwriting and 3- octave vocalizing encompass jazz, Americana, blues and cabaret. A veteran of Lilith Fair, she has sung on stage with the Indigo Girls, Sheryl Crow, the Dixie Chicks and Sarah McLachlan. She has been the opening act for musical artists as diverse as Loudon Wainwright III, Tuck & Patti and The Wailers. Her three solo CDs include Under Your Heart, produced by Michael C. Steele of the Randall Bramblett Band.

    For the Mystery Triennial show, Winkler will be accompanied by a collection of musical friends that will include singer Lisa Cesnik Ferguson (better known as a founding mother of Rose of Athens Theatre), violist Christina Gifford and singer/trombonist Audey Lee.

    This event is affiliated with the ATHICA Mystery Triennial, which runs through Sunday, September 18, 2011.

    This fun and unique exhibition celebrates Athens' artistic quality and diversity by giving visitors the rare opportunity to view works by over 120 local artists, all in one space at one time. All the works are the same size, 5.5 x 8.5, highlighting the wide range of mediums, both 2-D and 3-D, of these small works by signature Athens' artists.

    The twist is that they will be hung anonymously, with the mystery artists' identities revealed only to those who purchase pieces by donating to ATHICA. Donations of $60 for one work and $100 for two will help fund ATHICA's future exhibitions and events.

    Thank you to Noel Holston & Leslie Grove
