Sunday Music at Owl’s  Eye—OctoberOctober 1:  Fereby Bryant (harpist) grew up in Shelby, graduated from NCSU and after several years of working in the Raleigh area, returned to Cleveland County.  She studied for several years with Leila Lattimore, and has played at several weddings and special events since coming home.  She plays a mix of classical, pop and folk (Disney to Celtic to Bach).

October 15:  Alex Davis is a talented, classically trained songwriter and musician with a degree in Music Composition from the University of South Carolina.  A customer earlier this summer heard Alex in Greenville and suggested we invite him to Owl’s Eye.  Besides composing and performing, Alex has worked live sound and as a recording engineer.  He is part of indie/jazz outfit  “Passing Worth” and the jore progressive sounding “Miles to Go.”  Alex has his own style, influenced by fine musicians too numerous to count.  His love of diverse genres of music is infectious.  His lyrics reflect life’s compelling truths, often found in honest inconsistencies.  His first solo album was released in 2010; his second album “Perspectives” will be available soon.

October 22:   Sorella Jack (Melody Cox, Patty Mozzicato and Leah Wahl) are a popular trio at western North Carolina wineries, brew pubs and festivals.  Melody is a songwriter as well as a musician and vocalist and the trio will include some of her originals as well as more well known covers.  Check them out at www.facebook.com/sorellajack.  Patty M and Melody each play solo gigs as well as with their group.  Sorella Jack brings soul filling music in a variety of styles.

October 29:  Danny Scruggs and Crystal Plough (guitar and vocals) are two talented locals who have turned into a performing duo whose voices blend as well as they solo.  You will hear a wide variety of styles of music, some pop, folk, Americana..something for everyone.  Crystal and Danny connect well with each audience and are poised and professional performers.
