Marianne Dissard - Live@5 - Thursday 9/24
Marianne Dissard is from France but she's a longtime resident of Tucson. She put together a documentary on Giant Sand and has performed on stage and album with Calexico. Now Marianne has a beautiful new record recorded and released right here in the Old Pueblo. It is called L'Entredeux and Joey Burns, of Calexico, produces, plays and co-writes. With the Joey influence and John Convertino playing drums, it can't help but have that Calexico sound but from a French Cafe perspective. The vocals are all in French and there are gorgeous strings as well as bursts of gypsy jazz. The CD Release Party takes place at Plush on Saturday, Sept. 27th. Will Elliott, Mike Wise, Acoustic Terror, and Courtney Marie Andrews open the show.
Tune in Thursday to The Homestretch at 5pm for a Live@5 performance, culled from her recent appearance on KXCI's Locals Only.
