Just Announced: Faye Webster
Saturday, February 25, 8pm
Atlanta singer-songwriter Faye Webster’s signature sound draws as much from the lap-steel singer-songwriter pop of the 1970s and teardrop country tunes as it does from the audacious personalities of her city’s rap and R&B community. Since finding her way onto none other than Barack Obama’s 2020 year-end list, her status has skyrocketed. With her current tour selling out shows across the country, Webster adds a North Adams stop and you’ll be glad she did.
