Jeanne Jolly plans last local summer show at Berkeley Cafe

Posted June 21, 2012

North Carolina native Jeanne Jolly, along with her band – Chris Boerner on guitar, Allyn Love on pedal steel, E. Scott Warren on bass, and Nick Baglio on drums – will be performing their last local show of the summer on June 29 at Berkeley Cafe in Raleigh.

Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. Doors open at 8 p.m., with the show starting at 9 p.m. 

Jolly and the band have been finishing up their new album, which is scheduled to drop this fall. She will be debuting some new tunes from the album as well as playing songs from her 2010 release “Falling in Carolina," which was recorded in Durham.

"Falling in Carolina” was a collection of songs Jolly wrote when she first moved back to her hometown of Raleigh. The single, "Here with You," holds a very special place in her heart because it was inspired by the love story of her brother and his wife.

Her recently released music video for the song features shots of Jolly’s most memorable and favorite places in Raleigh - the Rialto, Third Place and the Raleigh Little Theater.

In 2008, Jolly’s mother was diagnosed with Stage 4 Ovarian Cancer. She passed away four months later.

Jolly is now working to help educate people about this disease and raise money for ovarian cancer research. Proceeds from the download of Jolly's cover of "Hallelujah" go to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.
