(SUCCASUNNA, NJ) -- Riverside Rhythm & Rhyme presents Abbie Gardner on Sunday, March 17 from 4:00pm-6:30pm at Investors Bank Theater in Succassunna. Tickets are $20 in advance ($15 for RAA/SSG/JAM members) and $22 at the door. Under 18 are admitted for free. The event is hosted by Skylands Songwriters Guild (SSG).
Abbie Gardner is not only an award-winning singer-songwriter but also a fiery dobro player with an infectious smile. Whether performing solo or with Americana darlings Red Molly, her acclaimed tales of love and loss, both gritty and sweet, are propelled by her impeccable slide guitar playing. An award-winning songwriter, Abbie's solo tour highlight s include Falcon Ridge, Clearwater, VA Arts Festival, The Kate, Passim, Godfrey Daniels, Uncle Calvin ’ s, The Spire and a formal showcase at the 2018 Folk Alliance Conference. Her latest CD, Wishes on a Neon Sign was released in January 2018 and features 12 original songs, one a co-write with Chris Stapleton.
"Abbie Gardner shows her prodigious writing chops in her album, Hope. Tales of love and loss, both gritty and sweet, ride the back of her by-now familiar, formidable slide guitar licks. She channels Lucinda and Bonnie, but remains pure Abbie," said Richard Cuccaro, Publisher, Acoustic Live.
Marion Halliday (of Trickster Sister) will open the show. A proud purveyor of her own special blend of bluegrass and bourbon-infused, original, woman-powered Americana. Named one of the "Ones to Watch" by the Nashville Songwriters Association International.
"Each song comes from a special place... some songs tell a story, some…come from the here, the now, the within. The moments of living which we all share - the pain or joy, triumph or despair, challenge or whimsy," explained Halliday.
