Stir Crazy Cafe Winter Music Series Kickoff featuring Liz Nance and Russell Lawson from 6 till 8 pm. Also come meet the artists and artisans who make your favorite products sold at Stir Crazy.
Liz Nance & Russell Lawson began playing as a duo in 1996 and perform locally at clubs, restaurants, special events, weddings and private parties. They perform a wide variety of styles from standard and pop to gospel, jazz and folk. Their audiences say the blending of male and female voices in clear layered harmonies with the acoustic sound of stringed instruments creates their unique sound.
You’re just as likely to hear an Indigo Girls composition or an Eagles cover as a Gershwin classic or a Broadway show tune when they perform.
Liz Nance has sung professionally for over 25 years in North Carolina, Richmond and Washington, DC. Since returning to Richmond in 1994, she formed the duo, appeared in Back to Bacharach and David (a musical revue), released two CDs, sang as a Section Leader in the Parish and West Gallery Choirs for St. James’s Episcopal Church including a week-long residency at Gloucester and Canterbury Cathedrals in England, and performed frequently as a soloist for weddings.
Russell Lawson has been playing and singing since the 1960s. He composes originals, both secular and sacred, and a number of his tunes evoke his roots in the South Carolina’s Low Country. Russell is a member of the Songwriters Guild of America, the Virginia Organization of Composers and Lyricists and the Americana Music Association. He sings and plays around Richmond with Oak Lane Acoustic Music, Liz Nance, solo or with his best friend, David Berry. He sang in the bass section of the West Gallery Choir at St. James’s Episcopal Church for 19 years and is a member of the choir’s Guitar Ensemble.
