Women & Zeppelin: A Tribute to Led Zeppelin
The Charleston Music Hall is thrilled to continue our Women & series in 2019 with Women & Zeppelin: A Tribute to Led Zeppelin!
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, and 2018 with Women & Young, Women & Bowie, Women & Dylan, Women & Radiohead, Women & The Rolling Stones, Women & Leonard Cohen, Women & Gram Parsons, Women & Cooke, Dudes & Dolly, Women & The Dead, Women & Petty, Women & The Beatles, and Guys & Gillian. 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 is a singer/songwriter and concert producer. 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.

Lily Slay has been practicing singing into a hairbrush in front of the mirror since she was five years old. Like smoke and honey, gravel and silk, and even her name itself, Slay’s distinctive voice and perspective are rife with their own contradictions, cultivated from a decade of ashes, heartache, and unrelenting optimism. At age twelve, Lily traded in her hairbrush for an acoustic guitar and decided to try her hand at songwriting, resulting in her signature mix of self-deprecating honesty and soulful delivery. When she was kicked out of boarding school for playing a bracing rendition of Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing,” Lily moved to the mean streets of Charleston, busking and playing open mic nights until she was a legal adult. Still vistually unemployable at age twenty-nine, Slay has been flitting around playing demonic vagabond rock and blues with her cousins in The Royal Tinfoil and crooning her folksy ballads to campfire friends ever since.
Charleston native, Heather Emrich, grew up in a family of classical and jazz musicians. She began performing in school and church as a child and studied classical voice with Ambrose Holford. During a five year stint in Munich, Germany, she continued to study and perform classical music and was a member of the München Akademischer Gesanverein. She attended a Berklee summer program and switched her focus to jazz and continued studying in Boston at the New England Conservatory. Returning to Charleston, she performs as a jazz artist for charitable events and private functions and loves to collaborate with local musicians on projects of every genre. Artistically, she is influenced by Blossom Dearie and contemporary jazz singers such as Esperanza Spaulding and Elizabeth Shepherd.
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”
Born in the Bronx to parents who fostered a great appreciation for the Arts, violist/vocalist Alva Anderson began piano lessons at the age of 10. Her desire to be a part of the music program in high school led her to the viola. At the time she didn't know what a viola was but it soon became her 'voice'. Her other voice revealed itself while Alva was on tour in Europe with a chamber music ensemble. Late one night at a jam session in a jazz club in Switzerland, a good buddy invited her to the microphone. The song was “My Funny Valentine.” The feeling and audience responses were intoxicating. The message was clear; she was twice blessed. With the acknowledgment of those gifts came the great joy, the responsibility to support, develop and share them with others. Back in the 'States' Alva began to frequent jam sessions throughout New York City. She attended vocal and instrumental workshops with Barry Harris, Billy Taylor, Sheila Jordan, Jay Clayton, Jimmy Heath and Billy Mitchell, Frank Owens, John Blake, Turtle Island String Quartet and Jimmy Seigler. For more than 20 years Alva has shared her love for music with her students in the New York City public schools. Many of her students have gone on to become professional musicians and music teachers. Alva’s has created two one women shows; The Elegant One, the Life in Music of Ella Fitzgerald and Fine “Brown” Frame, the Music of Ruth Brown. Her band members Tom DiPietra, guitar; Jesse Crawford, bass and Charlie Taylor, percussion have performed these concerts in libraries, churches and schools in New York City. With this band Alva Anderson creates original music and puts her own spin on the music of these singers and the other singers who have fed her desire to sing.
Erin Johns is a singer/songwriter native to Charleston, SC. Her songs are a unique and poignant blend of rock/soul/country/blues. She plays solo primarily with an electric and acoustic guitar and a giant voice that's made of steel and fire.
