Oregon based Alice DiMicele is bringing her groove folk and acoustic soul to the Lopez Island Grange for a “Home on the Grange” show on Sunday, Sept. 29, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 (suggested donation at the door), $5 (14 and under). DiMicele will also be performing at the Orcas Grange on Friday, Sept. 27 at 7:30 p.m.
DiMicele is a singer-songwriter and acoustic guitar player that seamlessly works jazz and blues phrasing and R&B and rock and roll rhythms into a broadened folk, roots and americana sound she calls “organic acoustic groove.” Whether solo or with her band, DiMicele brings her wide-ranging vocal prowess, humor and distinctive guitar style to her shows. She’s shared stages with some of music’s finest including some of her musical heroes like Bonnie Raitt, Joan Baez, JJ Cale, David Grisman Quintet and the list goes on. Bonnie Raitt said, “Alice’s music has that great combination of earthiness and groove that keeps it funky from the inside out. She’s for real.”
For over 30 years DiMicele has been a grassroots trailblazer in independent music. Bucking the advances of record labels early in her career she has self-released 14 albums on her Alice 0tter Music label including her latest 2018’s “0ne With the Tide.” DiMicele has stayed true to herself and her mission: to create music that connects people and inspires them to take a stand for the earth and for justice in the world.
