Lee Street theatre Winter Concert Series presents Chris Trapper with special guest Andrew Hodges this Friday, Feb. 7, at Lee Street Theater & Performing Arts Center, 329 N. Lee St.
Trapper’s music can best be described as lyrically driven roots-pop with a knack for telling everyday stories filled with extra–ordinary characters.His ability to craft songs that are both elegant and accessible is evident on each solo CD in his deep Discography. There is a smart, honest quality to the lyrics that never panders.
Trapper’s live show is a favorite among fans of alt-acoustic music. His onstage persona is warm and inclusive, his organic understanding of classic pop melody infectious. Audience members seem to particularly appreciate the lighthearted moments with the ukulele. They depart the venue at the end of the evening with the sense of having been truly entertained.
Chris Trapper began his career as the front man for late-90s alternative rock band The Push Stars (Capitol Records). With four CD releases and several high profile national tours — including a run with Matchbox Twenty — The Push Stars served to establish Chris as an authentic talent.
A prolific songwriter, Trapper can boast high profile film placements including “There’s Something About Mary” (Ben Stiller, Cameron Diaz), “The Devil Wears Prada” (Meryl Streep), “Say It Isn’t So” (Heather Graham) and “Gun Shy” (Sandra Bullock, Liam Neeson) as well as significant television placements including “All My Children,” “Women’s Murder Club,” “Malcolm In The Middle,” a coveted placement in George Clooney’s final episode of “ER,” the theme song for WB Networks dramedy “Pepper Dennis” and a cameo on–screen appearance with the show’s star, Rebecca Romjin.
Opening for Trapper is Salisbury favorite Andrew Hodges. Doors open at 6:30 and the show beings at 7 p.m. Tickets are $12, general admission only. This is an all ages show. Tickets are available at www.leestreet.org/tickets or 704-310-5507.
