Women & Petty: A Tribute to Tom Petty
We are thrilled to continue our 2018 Women & Series with Women & Petty: A Tribute to Tom Petty on Friday, Mar. 30th at 8PM! This show will feature some of Charleston’s best female vocalists and musicians.
The series is the brainchild of local musicians Lindsay Holler and Hazel Ketchum who thought it would be interesting to have women interpret the songs of Tom Waits back in 2015. It was a magical evening indeed. So magical, that we decided to keep the series rolling through 2016 and 2017 with Women & Young, Women & Bowie, Women & Dylan, Women & Radiohead, Women & The Rolling Stones, Women & Leonard Cohen, Women & Gram Parsons, Women & Cooke, and Dudes & Dolly. We have gathered an amazing and diverse line up of singers ranging from age 18 – 63! The evening will consist of two different bands backing these women with two sets. The Music Hall’s most successful local concert series to date, the “Women & Series” is a fun way to celebrate some of the artists we all love while also celebrating and encouraging our local musicians.
Lindsay Holler sings and plays guitar. her voice moves onto the sidewalk through a cracked upstairs window on dusky afternoons. it smells you with its tongue, pensively considers, and strikes. In clubs and theatres … its the same. On some occasions it caresses; other times accuses. When amplified it can be seen on the air … then we all drown.
Holler lives in Charleston, South Carolina. She hails the South as home and has lived in New Orleans and New York; she studied at Berklee College of Music in Boston. The music’s current state of evolution is supported by a little twang and a little late-night clarity.
Holler cites influences from the likes of Tom Waits, Gram Parsons, Nina Simone and Neil Young – preferring genre straddlers, categorical misfits and indefinables.
Hazel Ketchum is a singer, composer and multi-instrumentalist. Hazel plays guitar with the Hungry Monks , lute with Corde Contanti, guitar in the Irish duo Banna de Dhá and is the drummer for The Harrows. Hazel’s teaching studio Hungry Monk Music is a popular place for children and adults to learn music. Hazel can be heard on her newest recordings The Hungry Monks “Superior Crust” , Banna de Dhá “Band of Two” and “Science Songs Rock”

Becca Smith never meets a stranger. She's been singing since her days in the crib, but her life changed forever when she picked up the guitar at age 8. "Music is my confidant, my companion, and my greatest love affair. There was never a eureka moment that showed me this. For as long as I can remember, it's just been a part of me," Smith says. Becca is a South Carolina native and graduated from the College of Charleston in 2015 with degrees in German and Arts Management. She has performed on Balcony TV Charleston and Lowcountry Live and is currently co-producing her debut, original album at Truphonic Studios in West Ashley, due out early 2018. Becca Smith is an old soul, an open heart, and on a mission to chance the world through her love for music.
