"Can't wait to head for the north country and play with Scarlet & my band at the Weber. River songs, flood songs, recovery songs, songs of renewal and songs of hope! All for a great cause - the restoration of the historic Armory. Soon we may be able to do a concert on the Armory stage where many of the greatest have played in the past. Thanks for supporting this effort. Make a plan - May 17!!" -- Gene

COURTNEY YASMINEH is a performing and recording artist and songwriter whose sultry voice is distinctly recognizable for its emotion and intelligence. Her songs speak of love and redemption, with an entertaining dose of smart and sexy sass. Yasmineh is part troubadour, part seductress and attributes her songwriting style to the great wordsmiths of popular music like Bob Dylan and her personal style to iconic rock chicks like Debbie Harry.
