We haven't hosted Louisiana music in a while, so we are thrilled Dusky Waters' first date in their Texas tour will take place in our backyard. Join us for an evening of New Orleans New Americana!

Dusky Waters is a project founded by singer-songwriter Jennifer Jeffers. Dusky Waters enchants listeners with intricate layers of melodies and stories told through soulful lyricism. Dusky represents the most magical time of day and Waters describes the Mississippi from which she draws strength and inspiration. She grew up on the traditions of gospel and folk music in Little Rock, Arkansas. Her childhood interest in piano blossomed into a close relationship with a guitar and eventually a love affair with a banjo. In her early twenties, she moved to the delta region of North Louisiana and began writing songs influenced by its rural beauty and the struggles of being young and restless in a small town.

Living in the delta, Dusky became a part of the duet Silo, where she honed her songwriting skills and the honey harmonies for which she is known. Dusky toured with Silo across the Southeast, earning a following from Folk and Americana fans across Louisiana and the Gulf Coast. Silo’s EP, Tall Tales was met with acclaim by local music critics in Baton Rouge, Jackson, Mississippi, and Jacksonville, Florida.

Dusky’s songwriting is honest and vulnerable to its core. She writes of love and love lost, of the draw of the South, and of the unending quest to find one’s truest self. She draws inspiration from musical powerhouses Elizabeth Cotten, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Nina Simone, and the Avett Brothers.

Dusky keeps her sound fresh with a mix of instruments, non-traditional melodies, and experimental harmonies at live shows. After moving to New Orleans In May of 2015, Dusky now performs with the very talented musicians Analiese De Saw (viola), Conner McCready (percussion), Dylan James (upright bass), and Tommy Henson (piano/organ). The band recently recorded its first full-length studio album, Pass it On (release date: June 9, 2023) at Annunciation/Platinum Cutz Studios in New Orleans with recording engineer Derek DeBlieux. The band is extremely grateful to the Threadhead Cultural Foundation for grant funding and support with this project.

***DISCLAIMER: In case of inclement weather, the show will be held indoors.***
