Tift Merritt, Chris Stamey

When: Sat., Aug. 17, 8 p.m. 2013

Last year marked the 10-year anniversary of Bramble Rose, the bristling and brisk major-label debut of Triangle singer-songwriter Tift Merritt. Ever since, Merritt has worked at several shifting thresholds of the music industry—she's alternately been an alt-country belter, adult-contemporary charmer, soul-rock bandleader, indie rock chanteuse, classical crossover tinkerer. Her comfort with that live-in identity crisis has made for several uneven records and likely curbed the quick rise to fame many suspected, but it's also made Merritt a continually interesting personality capable of turning toward unlikely new muses. It's a trait that plays out best live, when she captures all those interests with a set and a smile that shows she means every musical mode. —Grayson Haver Currin
