Two musicians will take the stage at Looking Glass Artists Center’s black box theater Saturday. Laura Thurston and Tripp Edwards Band will be playing starting at 6:30 p.m.

Tickets are $10 at the door.

Thurston launched her solo career in 2011, performing up and down the east coast.

With her original ideas and talented executions this one woman band is sure to dazzle any audience.

Thurston brings multi-instrumentalism to a new level.

The audience will be enthralled when they see Thurston rappin’ on a suitcase kick drum with one foot and tappin’ on a tambourine with the other; all the while, hands on her guitar and mouth on her harp.

Thurston adds sweet sugary vocals to her acoustic folk-grass mix.

Tripp Edwards Band includes Tripp Edwards on guitar and keyboard; Darryl Jones on pedal steel, mandolin, guitar and lap steel; Kenny Thomas on bass; and Zack Davis on drums.

The group’s alternative, country, rock, folk sounds will make you think of Bob Dylan and Neil Young.
