Christie Lenee will perform two concerts as part of the Down East Folk Arts Society concert series.

The performances start at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 11, at Trent River Coffee Co. in New Bern and Saturday, May 12, at Unitarian Coastal Fellowship in Morehead City.

Ms. Leneeā€™s unique guitar work is often compared to visionaries like Michael Hedges, Joni Mitchell and Dave Mathews, delivering instrumental compositions with heartfelt, consciously uplifting songs.

Her pieces have been showcased at the NAMM show in Anaheim and Nashville, live on national television and radio, on stage with artists such as Tim Reynolds, the guitarist for the Dave Matthews Band, and Andy McKee.

In concert, the audience can expect to see and hear the Toe Kicker Foot Stomp box, which is similar to a kick drum, a tambourine, some effects pedals and a vocal harmonizer that allows Ms. Lenee to perform three-part harmonies solo.

General admission is $16. Tickets for active duty military and Down East Folk Arts Society members are $13, while tickets for full-time students are $10.
