Charleston native and RCA recording artist Charlotte Martin returns home January 17 to perform a sold-out show in the Doudna Fine Arts Center’s Black Box Theatre. For those who do not have tickets, the Doudna Box Office is collecting names for those fans interested in knowing when additional tickets become available.
‘The concert has been sold out since November,” said Dan Crews, patron services manager at the Doudna Fine Arts Center. It’s sure to be an exciting night when friends, family and fans come together to welcome back the hometown girl who’s found success as a singer-songwriter. The box office staff has had a number of people ask if they could be put on a stand-by list when and if there are any cancellations or if additional seats become available, Crews added.
Martin’s bona-fide inner-pianist echoes the orchestrated ruminations of Kate Bush and Peter Gabriel, as well as the poetic storytelling of Joni Mitchell.   Details magazine describes Charlotte Martin as “a seductive performer” and “a skilled lyricist who writes with surgical precision.”
The one-night only event is a celebration of Charlotte Martin’s upcoming CD release and tour. This new collection of songs differs from all of Charlotte's previous release, but still aligns with her passions, convictions, dynamic vocals, and intricate lyrics.
For those fortunate enough to tickets for the concert, Charlotte will be playing new songs and catalog favorites.
