Spirits Rising Concert

Joe Reilly, much-loved troubadour who has brought uplifting music to Lopez for more than a decade, returns this Friday, July 13 for an intimate evening concert at Center Church. Joe will be performing this year with his wife, Allison who appeared with him here in 2015. Allison’s debut that night of her original piano score, Detroit Suite, is well remembered for its elegance, power and beauty.

This concert, which is for adult audiences, will combine the diverse talents of both performers who now appear as the duo, Spirits Rising. Local friend Jaime Cordova will accompany them on conga and cajon drums. Joe and Allison incorporate elements of jazz, folk, blues, hip-hop, rock, and traditional Native American music in their concerts. Both compose original music, play a variety of instruments and collaborate on vocals. They describe their style as “music from the heart.”
