The Americana pop sextet, Delta Rae, fronted by two powerhouse singers, Brittany Holljes and Elizabeth Hopkins, are bringing their full bodied harmony, country-rock with a touch of gospel to the WHBPAC stage on Saturday, June 14, at 8 p.m. "If Fleetwood Mac came up in North Carolina, they might resemble Delta Rae," noted Rolling Stone. Delta Rae has turned heads at festivals across the country, and their contagious sound will have you clapping, stomping, and dancing the night away. Delta Rae's opening act is Gabe Dixon, and tickets are priced at $25, $30 and $35.

Soulful pop vocalist, Vanessa Carlton will perform her unique vocals and distinctive piano riffs on Sunday, June 15, at 8 p.m. After her well-known debut pop single, "A Thousand Miles," this Grammy-nominated, piano playing, singer-songwriter's reminiscent songs conjure up a charming sort of pensive power. Don't miss her perform in this intimate setting. Tickets are priced at $30, $40 and $50.

Lucinda Williams, Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter, will be performing her poignant songs on Saturday, June 21, at 8 p.m. Williams has been honored as "One of the Top 100 Women in Rock" by VH1, and voted "America's Best Songwriter," by Time Magazine. Her evocative songs are celebrated as brilliant, musical narratives that broke through new cultural barriers. By combining country, folk, rock and blues, Williams has been the object of a cult-like adoration for many years, and is universally hailed as a respected vocal talent. Touring to promote her most recent album, "Blessed," the singer's gritty voice and soulful passion will be something you don't want to miss. The Kenneth Brian Band will open for Williams. Tickets are priced at $85, $110 and $135.

Natalie Merchant, former 10,000 Maniacs member, is bringing her new collection of original songs to the WHBPAC stage on Sunday, July 20, at 8 p.m. As a productive singer-songwriter, Merchant's deep, distinctive voice helped define an entire generation. Her songs are socially conscious and rather knowledgeable. Her work helped to solidify her position as a frontrunner among women in pop music in the early nineties. The rocker has enjoyed more success in her solo career than she did with her band, 10,000 Maniacs. Tickets for this show are sold out.

Young jazz singer, Cécile McLorin Salvant, will perform at the WHBPAC on Sunday, August 10, at 8 p.m. She has been renowned as the new voice of modern jazz, and her smooth voice emits the assurance and poise of a matured artist. Almost immediately after she walked away as the youngest winner of the prestigious, Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition in 2010, the buzz about Salvant began. In a flash, she was touring with Wynton Marsalis & the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. In the meantime, her first U.S. album, Womanchild, was nominated for a Grammy Award. As an aged soul, she makes classic songs sound entirely new. Tickets are priced at $60, $70 and $80.
