Singer/songwriters Mark Kelly Hall and Charlsey Etheridge will bring their signature mix of original tunes and “songs you already like” to Angela's Deli in Athens Friday at 7 p.m.

The family-friendly acoustic show will feature a blend of blues, pop, folk and country. Hall's songs reflect the spiritual heritage of the Bible Belt South, combined with a lifelong fascination with American pop culture.

Since college, church-related volunteer work has taken him and his guitar to Puerto Rico, Harlem, Hawaii, the Pacific Northwest, Minsk and, most recently, South Africa.

He has performed in various local venues including Riverbend, on the Southern Belle and several coffeehouses.

Etheridge offers a blend of folk, pop and blues reminiscent of Sheryl Crow with nods to Billie Holiday and Linda Ronstadt.

She's from Dalton, Ga., and went to Lee University. She has just recorded a new CD with some really top-notch performers, including a fiddler from the bluegrass group The Grascals.

When she is not on stage herself, she is a full-time music (guitar) teacher who helps encourage future performers.
