Dixie Chicks' Robin Macy returns to Dallas with her new group The Cherokee Maidens on November 7

The Cherokee Maidens will bring perform on Friday, November 7 at the legendary Uncle Calvin’s Coffeehouse in Dallas. The group may be new but it is comprised of industry veterans: Robin Macy, Monica Taylor and Jennifer Pettersen, who have come together to create a distinctive sound that harkens to another era. Think Bob Wills meets the Andrew Sisters.  The Cherokee Maidens have more in common than just their Native American heritage. They share a love for old dogs, spicy Tex-Mex, crocheted pillowcases and harmonic melodies along with the red dirt under their nails.

This musical triad is familiar territory for Macy, who was a founding member of the (in)famous Dixie Chicks. Each Maiden is a songwriter: Taylor and Macy have been featured on Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion and Pettersen’s own music videos have garnered more than 10,000 hits online.

All have acclaimed recordings under their rodeo belt buckles. But it is this collective of timbre and shared passion for the past that sets them apart from the pack and unites them as a tribe. “I am returning to the Metroplex after nearly two decades looking for old ghosts and new amigos." says Macy. "Uncle Calvin’s is a favorite venue of my youth." The band describes the show as all-American, multi-generational and family-friendly.

Calvin’s is celebrating its’ 32nd anniversary of Friday night concerts the month of November. Uncle Calvin’s Coffeehouse is located in Northpark Presbyterian Church at 9555 North Central Expressway, Dallas, Texas 75231. Tickets are $15 tickets in advance / $18 at the door.
