Nanci Griffith to Perform in Charlottesville, VA

Nanci Griffith is coming to the Paramount Theater in Charlottesville VA on Tuesday April 17th.  She is a Grammy-award winning singer-songwriter and an Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award winner.  She will be performing songs from her new album Intersection.  Twenty albums now, and none before like this.

“It's emotional for me, and it's personal, and it makes my heart pound, thinking I'm going to be totally exposed here,” says Nanci Griffith.  Intersection sounds like a exciting piece of work because it is not an album of resolution or closure; it's an album about difficulties, about anger, about things that slip away and things that explode.  It exams a time of difficulty for Griffith - personal break-ups, family difficulties, and breaking bad habits.

“I've had a hard life, and I write it down,” Griffith sings on the title track, and that line serves as a statement of fact and purpose, and as a gentler way to explain her near-shouted musical exclamation, “Hell no, I'm not alright.”  “At some point, you have to get it out,” she says. “I couldn't walk around with the anger. I didn't write these songs to punish anybody. I thought I wrote them to get these things off my chest. But now I've taken them on the road, and every night when I sing, 'Hell no, I'm not alright,' and I see my audience come to their feet, I understand exactly why I wrote this.”

If you are coming to her concert why not spend the evening and stay with us at our Charlottesville bed and breakfast?  Treat yourself to some luxury after hearing her beautiful and thoughtful music.

Tom taught himself to cook with the help of Jacques Pépin’s legendary illustrated manuals on French cooking, La Technique and La Méthode.  Throughout his career Chef Colicchio has earned awards for his cooking - including the James Beard Foundation's Best Chef-New York.

He has three cookbooks to date - Think Like a Chef (2000), Craft of Cooking (2003) and 'wichcraft inspired sandwich cookbook (2009).
