Carter Robertson is singing in Camino

By From page B5 | June 21, 2013

Carter photoCarter Robertson is bringing her provocative and inspiring musical memoir, “Playin’ on the Tracks” to Para Vi Winery, 2875 Larsen Drive in Camino, on Saturday, June 22.

“Playin’ on the Tracks” is the compelling story of her transformation from a child of the rural church culture to a world-class performer on stage as the only female member of Waylon Jennings’ band throughout country music’s famed Outlaw era and beyond.

From California’s Dust Bowl heritage of the 1950s to the Haight-Ashbury of the ’60s and ’70s, this quintessentially American tale, told through stories and songs, chronicles her journey of life where music rules, humor softens real life tragedies and perceived failures result in redemption.

Carter has worked in the music industry most of her life as an artist, writer and background singer. She sang on more than 15 of Jennings and his wife Jessi Colter’s albums, including such hits as “Luckenbach Texas,” “Are You Ready For the Country” and “Dukes of Hazzard” to name a few.

Other studio credits include working with Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson and James Taylor. She later joined up with Waylon and old friends to form the Waymore Blues Band, which toured and recorded with the country music legend, culminating in the landmark “Never Say Die” concert at the Ryman Auditorium.

Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and the show is from 6:45 to approximately 8:45 p.m.

Tickets are $15. To purchase tickets or more information contact Edd Donald at 530-644-4713, the winery at 530-647-9463 or visit carterrobertson.com.
