Earlier this year Baltimore based indie-folk artist ellen cherry survived a car wreck while on tour in Texas. After a few nights in the ICU, the singer-songwriter emerged with her spirit intact and eventually hit the road again christening her next round of shows as the "Lucky Break" tour. Cherry is a perky multi-instrumentalist with a knack of turning life's lemons into lemon meringue; after being downsized from an accounting job, she focused on a music career and never went back to the ledger. Cherry's relaxing melodies, along with a penchant for lyrics rooted in historical fiction, have earned her numerous honors including one for best pop/ rock recording at the 2013 Washington area music awards for her latest CD "Please Don't Sell The Piano."
ellen cherry performs with Connie Deming on Saturday, November 2, 7:30 p.m. at Café Veritas at First Unitarian Church, 220 Winton Rd South. $10 - $18, cafeveritas.org.
