Charly Lowry and Friends LIVE

  • Overview

    Charly Lowry is a singer-songwriter from NC with Native American roots from the dark swamps of Robeson County. Before she could talk, it was obvious that Charly would lead a life of entertaining others, as evidenced by her grandfather’s collection of VHS tapes; through his camera lens, Charly and her grandfather began the communicative back and forth of sharing in the joys of storytelling, make-believe, song, and dance. Throughout her years as an adolescent, Charly began to develop a reputation as an ambassador for her People, the Lumbee. Today, the Lumbee are known throughout the United States as being the only tribe in the nation to receive Federal Recognition from the US government, but with the stipulation of not receiving full benefits; a large part of this injustice is attributed to the overwhelming oral and documented history of the Lumbee as being descendants of the Tuscarora of NC.
