Charly Lowry (Americana)

October 17 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

See description

Charly Lowry, a musical powerhouse from Pembroke, N.C., is proud to be an Indigenous woman belonging to the Lumbee/Tuscarora Tribes. She is passionate about raising awareness around issues that plague underdeveloped and under-served communities. Since her teenage years, Lowry  has established a career as a professional singer-songwriter with a unique passion and voice. In addition to performing solo, for 10-plus years, she has been the front-woman for the award-winning band, Dark Water Rising. Most recently, Lowry and the members of her newest project, Charly & The Sunshine, were selected by the U.S. Department of State and American Music Abroad to participate in the 2021–22 American Music Abroad virtual season.

Among her community, women are traditionally barred from the hand drum and relegated to singing behind the men’s drum and/or dancing instead. Lowry defies that norm, following in the footsteps of her mentor, an artist and heir to the Tuscarora Indian Nation Pura Fé. Lowry chooses to battle with her songs, hand drum and guitar to deliver songs that not only tell the plight of her people but all humans who face oppression. Robeson County, her home, is one of the most diverse counties in the U.S., and Lowry celebrates that diversity in all aspects of her life. While she may be familiar to some from her success as a semi-finalist on American Idol, she has maintained close ties to her Native American roots and culture. It is important to her to express the struggle, sacrifice and obstacles her people have overcome throughout history.

She serves as a voice for her ancestors as well as the youth of today, and remains committed to music that honors her roots and that lives vibrantly in the here and now.
