December 16, 2005, hometown fans braved an ice storm to hear
Terri Allard and her band play at the opulently restored
gilded space and sparkling ice of that evening is captured
on Live from Charlottesville, Terri's fifth CD and first
live recording. Unlike typical live recordings, Terri's album
features seven new songs – five fabulous originals
and two wonderfully sung covers of her fan's favorites.

shaking. With Gary Green's harmonica steaming, Terri stokes
the fire with her gutsy alto then poignantly introduces the
next song, Heroes, on which she tells about her four-year-old

violin, accordion, guitar, harmonica and mandolin, Terri chronicles
the highs and lows of just living every day. Whether singing
with a country lilt on Once Upon a Time or velvet-voiced raucousness
on We'll Have Elvis, Terri Allard is an American original.
Along with special guests John Jennings (Mary Chapin Carpenter's
longtime collaborator) and jazz pianist Art Wheeler, Terri
and her Dad, Bill Allard, bring the whole magical evening on
home with an emotional duet of Randy Newman’s Louisiana
1927... an event that no one has to miss thanks to this superb
This CD is
dedicated to my brother Scott, my mother
Mary Catherine, and my husband Dwayne -- three heroes in my life
who have always managed to save the day.
