Put three distinct voices on one stage, and musical magic happens. Sarah Clanton, Pretend Sweethearts and Heather Mae are united in art, but their sounds are significantly different. Mae offers positive pop, and Pretend Sweethearts bring romantic soul and bluesy guitar. Clanton, pictured, whose smoky take on the cello has a speakeasy spirit, has history here: “Asheville was one of the first cities I ever played an open mic in when I began to gravitate away from the classical world. I love the people, the food, the mountains and the vibe of the city,” she says. The three women-led groups will perform at Isis Restaurant and Music Hall on Thursday, Nov. 17, at 8:30 p.m. $10. isisasheville.com. Photo by Jeremy Ryan
