Darke County Center for the Arts
DCCA presents Kentucky Trio “Zoe Speaks” at The Coffee Pot

Darke County Center for the Arts Coffeehouse Series continues with a concert at The Coffee Pot in downtown Greenville on Thursday, November 9 featuring “Zoe Speaks,” a trio from the mountains of Kentucky. “This group can play everything from traditional ballads to contemporary tunes with their mellow mix of close harmonies accompanied by guitar, banjo, upright bass, and dulcimer,” said DCCA Artistic Director Keith Rawlins. “And they are powerhouse songwriters as well, having won a slew of top songwriting awards for their amazing work,” Rawlins stated. The concert will start at 7 p.m.
 
The trio “Zoe Speaks” consists of Mitch Barrett, Carla Gover, and Owen Reynolds, all of whom grew up playing songs rooted in Appalachia; however, their sound draws on a variety of rhythms and styles from pop to blues to calypso. According to Rawlins, their songs are socially conscious and spiritual, with themes ranging from the environment to relationships, and lyrics populated by tricksters, angels, addicts, fools, mules, and heroes. “Their music can be described as mountain twang meets contemporary folk; it’s fresh, catchy, and steeped in rural sensibility,” he concluded.
 
DCCA’s Coffeehouse Series presents high quality artists performing in a casual social setting where food and drink are also available; Eileen and Steve Litchfield and Rodney Oda are sponsors for these casual concerts. DCCA also receives operating support from the Harry D. and Esther Stephens Memorial as well as funding from the Ketrow Foundation and Lydia E. Schaurer Memorial Trust Fund. DCCA membership contributions also help support this show.
 
Tickets for the concert by “Zoe Speaks” cost $10, and are available at The Coffee Pot. For more information, contact DCCA at 937-547-0908or dcca@centerforarts.net.
