The rich harmonies and good fun of four talented female singer-songwriters will fill the air at Martin Methodist College on Friday, Jan. 31, as Queen of Hearts returns for the Homecoming 2014 concert.

The concert will be at 7 p.m. at Martin Hall Auditorium. Admission is $7 per person with all students (kindergarten through college) and members of the college’s Alumni Association admitted free of charge. Other Homecoming festivities will be held across campus on Saturday, Feb. 1.

Call 931-3363-9882 for ticket reservations.

Bethanne Clayton, Helen Lewis Moore, Ellen Britton and April Amick Caughman first performed at Martin Methodist College as the featured artists for Homecoming 2005. Britton was on campus this past fall for the college’s Songwriter’s Dream concert series, at which time plans were made to bring the foursome back for an encore performance.

Individually, the four women have successful solo careers as writers and performers, but a decade ago they discovered a special chemistry as a quartet, bringing their unique gifts together as Queen of Hearts. The result is an evening of remarkable vocals, strong musicianship and songs that are both poignant and humorous.

“Their voices blend seamlessly, and it’s evident they take pleasure in contributing to the greater sum of the parts. If you’re a fan of pop- and blues-inflected country laced with four-part harmonies, check out Queen of Hearts,” writes Jack Silverman of Nashville Scene.

“Able to interact with each other and connect with the audience in such a smooth and comfortable way, Queen of Hearts’ poignant lyrics had our audience dabbing at their eyes one minute and wiping away tears of laughter the next,” according to Mark and Donna Paz Kaufman, hosts of “An Evening of Story and Song” concert series in Amelia Island, Fla.

For more information about the concert, call 931-363-9882.
