The Hollar Entertainment is bringing legendary, world-class and grammy-award winning Americana artists to SoMD in the intimate setting of a ‘Listening Room’ at Friday’s Creek Winery in Owings, Maryland.
What is a “Listening Room?” Well, The Hollar Entertainment owner Donna Sue Roberts will be glad you asked.
“It is a smaller venue — in our case, with 70 seats — where concert-goers can have a more intimate and conversational audience with the featured artist,” Donna Sue said.
Usually, in a news article, we use people’s last names as we continue to identify them, but in the case of Donna Sue Roberts, she is lovingly branded, Donna Sue.
Donna Sue spends her spare time in Nashville listening to and recruiting artists to bring to SoMD.
“Patrons will find that I have a good ear and they can trust it,” she said. “The venue is not only complementary to the sound but creates an Americana atmosphere.”
She said most of the featured artists are up and coming singer-songwriters who have written hits on the radio.
“Some, you may have never heard of, but you’re sure to walk away fan,” Donna Sue said.
She said while sitting on back porches in Tennessee listening to music with friends; she would think the experience was so amazing.
“I thought, ‘I need to share this with SoMD,'” she said.
The Hollar has already hosted artists such as Dan O’Rourke from the tv show “The Voice,” Rapidan Ridge, Emisunshine, Reverie Lane which is Tanya Tucker’s daughters’ duo, Thomas Gabriel, Lulu’s Fate and more.
“I would like to give away two tickets to the next event to TheBayNet readers to expose them to the music of Karen Jonas and let them experience the venue,” Donna Sue said.
Coming up, The Hollar will host the following singer-songwriters at Friday’s Creek Winery in Owings:
- Aug. 31 – Karen Jonas
- Sept. 7 – Larry Mitchell and Bruce Sadona
- Sept. 20 – Thomas Gabriel, Johnny Cash’s grandson
- Oct. 11 – The Billy Hubbard Band from Tennessee and Seafoam Green from Ireland
