EC-CHAP "Acoustic Artist Series": Gracie Day with Lee Sylvestre
TICKETS $12.00 IN ADVANCE (ONLINE) / $15.00 AT THE DOOR
Special Note: We welcome Gracie Day and Lee Sylvester back to The Packing House with great pleasure! Since their last visit, Gracie's musical career has grown to new heights (both as a solo artist and with her band Gracie Day & The Knights) - and with no surprises here. Her original songwriting, unique vocals and emotional delivery are being recognized throughout the state and beyond. Lee's guitar skills and dynamics are second to none; and we hope to learn more about his new project with The Auburn Mode. Not only are they extremely talented musicians, their humble and respectful nature make collaboration a true pleasure. - EC-CHAP
Gracie Day is 2017’s “Best New Act” according to the New England Music Awards, an organization that acknowledges musical artists across all six states. Based in Hartford, and recently named “Best Folk Band” in CTNow’s Best of Hartford Reader’s Poll for 2017, Gracie Day is gaining a reputation for her authentic performances and heartfelt storytelling which is highlighted by melodic sensibility and dynamic sound.
The genre “Folk”, though a large influence on Day’s lyric writing, doesn’t quite describe the mixture of rock, soul and country her band has. Her debut E.P released in November 2017, and another record is anticipated for 2018.
Gracie will be performing at the Packing House with her talented guitar player, Lee Sylvestre who adds beautiful musical dynamics and harmonies.
