ChamberSoul returns to Durham Friday as Shana Tucker graces the new Beyu Caffe stage. This performance will be devoted to an offering of songs (both familiar and slightly obscure) by artists whose genre- and generation-spanning music has influenced Shana over the years, presented as a “playlist” and re-imagined in her unique, ChamberSoul style. It’s a preemptive introduction to new music that will be released in late 2016.
