Chicago’s own Charming Axe will be playing a live set tonight at 27 Live to celebrate their new covers record Gathering Days. The folk/roots trio met up at Old Town School Of Music 15 years ago, and have been playing covers and some original material together ever since. Certainly a talented group of musicians, they sound best when the voices of Rob Newhouse, Eugenia Elliott, and Hannah Hill combine to create really beautiful harmonies. The tunes range in style from appalachian hillsongs to more modern folk akin to Old Crow Medicine Show or Mumford & Sons.
The opener for tonight’s show will be another Chicago singer, Julia Klee. She is very good, so make sure you get there early! Tickets can be purchased in advance here.
If you can’t make it to this concert, Charming Axe will also be playing at the Lakeview East Art Fair on Saturday September 13th.
