Live music tonight at 6pm! Come and enjoy the sweet acoustic sound of Sun City Players: the Laura Caldwell and Al Carness duo. Flights, glass pours and open bottle purchases all day!
Laura Caldwell has been singing all her life, to herself. It’s only been in the last few years that she’s allowed herself the chance to pursue singing for the sheer joy of it. In 2010 she and guitarist, Al Carness, started “working up a few songs.” Laura is drawn to songs that touch her heart, from Pop and Folk to Blues. She has a blast when she sees people in the audience singing along with her when she covers some of her familiar favorites.
Al Carness has had a long love affair with the guitar. At age 10, after listening to one of his sister’s Elvis 45s, Al took up the guitar and hasn’t put it down since. Playing in touring bands since the ripe age of 14, Al has played it all, starting out in the Rock ‘n’ Roll of the 50s, to Surf, Jazz, Blues, Classic Rock, and now Country with Portland’s Concrete Cowboys. He will tell you how much he enjoys playing acoustic on his favorite ’54 Martin D-28. Al provides a blend of dynamic finger-picking styles and riffs that audiences and other musicians love.
Al and Laura play in venues from Portland, Oregon, to Port Townsend, Washington. Their audiences often tell Laura and Al how much they enjoy the chemistry when they perform together. To learn more visit their website: www.suncityplayers.com
