Caroline Aiken  Veteran Georgia singer, songwriter, and guitarist Caroline Aiken comes to the Freight with master of the Hammond B3 organ, Ike Stubblefield, to play a rich mix of folk, rock, and blues. Caroline grew up in Atlanta, joined a rock band called Fathertime in her early teens in 1969, toured Europe and the Americas, and moved back to Atlanta in time to mentor a new duo called the Indigo Girls. She has recorded with Bonnie Raitt, opened for Randy Newman and Arlo Guthrie, played on NPR’s Mountain Stage, and released eight albums. Her ninth, Broken Wings Heal, is due out soon. Ike has been in the music business for nearly 50 years and backed legends like Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield, Al Green, Stevie Wonder, and Cee Lo Green. He lived in the Haight in the 1970s and is now based in New Orleans, lending his soulful, rhythm and blues style to an assortment of artists, as well as fronting the Ike Stubblefield Trio.

 

Jill Knight

Jill Knight is a Bay Area singer-songwriter with Georgia roots. “Few songwriters seem to have the self-assurance that this singer possesses,” says Dirty Linen in a review praising her “first rate, high quality music.” She “approaches her music with an unadorned intensity, her songs pack an emotional punch rich in the details of everyday experiences.” Performing Songwriter Magazine says “It’s hard to say which is better – the song or the way Jill Knight sings it.” That melding of song and performance is what gives Jill’s music its staying power. She has shared the stage with John Prine, Shawn Colvin, and Los Lobos, and has released three albums, including Rare October, a live album recorded in France. Pam Delgado and Jeri Jones of Blame Sally are both stellar musicians and great entertainers. Pam plays percussion and guitar, and Jeri plays guitar, bass, dobro, and mandolin, and they can sing anything from mournful ballads to sweet love songs to blazing acoustic soul.
