Double-Header: Deb Hunseder With Opener TerryLynn Melody

Deb Hunseder (of Halcyon) returns to The Reserve for another supreme performance with her beautiful, strong voice and trusty acoustic guitar, starting at 7:30 pm until 9:30 pm.

Deb played on the Melissa Etheridge/Sarah McLachlan cruise, as well as with Rob Thomas of Matchbox 20. But here's how it all began:

Deb Hunseder and Steph Callahan of Halcyon met in 1989 and had their first gig two weeks later. The harmonies were magic. From the first note, they knew they had something that could not be matched. Since 1989 the duo has opened for national acts including John Mayer, India.Irie, Joan Osborne, Tabithas Secret (now Matchbox 20), Sister Hazel, Crosby, Stills, and Nash, Joan Bias, Cheryl Wheeler, Wynonna Judd, Patrice Pike, Sarah Bettens, Melissa Ferrick, and Koko Taylor. 

Deb has also lent her voice to the national anthem for the Atlanta Braves, Tampa Rays and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 

Deb and Halcyon built a iron-clad fan base by touring the US and abroad. They've played many mainstage Pride events, Olivia cruises and festivals including Atlanta, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, Denver, Alaska, York, England and tour heavily in the southeastern US.

Now, Deb is back again, SOLO, at The Reserve! You may want to come early to get a great seat, as the performances are always full!

About TerryLynnMelody:

TerryLynn Melody (sounds a bit like the Indigo Girls and has opened for Deb Hunseder of Halcyon). She'll start playing at 6 pm.

Melody began performing as a child in musical theater and recitals, in her hometown of New Bern, NC.  Her mother, a Performing Arts graduate and professional singer, was her role model and teacher. Guided by a need to find her voice an an artist, she began exploring songwriting as a means to tell her story. The resulting songs are an ever growing catalog of original material. She recently produced her first CD "Counting Daydreams"  featuring Country Music Hall of Fame artist Charlie McCoy on 2 of the 12 original tracks spanning country, folk, pop and blues. She is grateful for the audiences who have let her share her stories and songs with them. They have played an integral part in her finding her voice.
