Lynn Blakey CD release, Holden Richards, Jeffrey Dean Foster

When: Fri., April 8, 8 p.m. 2011

Of all the accomplished musicians who have sprung from the Triangle's indie and roots communities in the past couple of decades, the best pure singer among them may well be Lynn Blakey. With a pedigree that stretches back to the Athens, Ga., 1980s heyday and with close ties to N.C. studio pioneers Mitch Easter and Chris Stamey, Blakey has made some great recordings over the years with bands such as The Glory Fountain and Tres Chicas. The new five-song EP, Meadowview, is, surprisingly, her first release under her own name; it features fetching violin and vocal accents by her husband, German expat Ecki Heins. He's undoubtedly the subject of the leadoff track, "Immigrant Heart"; there's also a fresh take on "Bloom," one of the Chicas' finest tunes. Jeffrey Dean Foster opens; Holden Richards closes. Free/ 8 p.m. —Peter Blackstock
