LIVE! A Music Calendar featuring Mark Bilyeu fundraiser

LIVE! A Music Calendar featuring Mark Bilyeu fundraiser

Margo Price is making a trip to Fayetteville.

The Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter and author will bring her “Till The Wheels Fall Off Tour” with Kam Franklin to George’s Majestic Lounge at 8 p.m. Nov. 29. Tickets are $26-$99.

Price plans to release her next album, “Strays,” on Jan. 13. The album deals with Price’s journey of navigating her way through loss, lies, failure and substance abuse. She has learned how to let go of trauma, pain and addiction, and this collection of 10 original songs serves as a celebration of freedom in its many forms. Extracting herself from expectations, musical genres and the material desires that drive the world, Price tackles demons of self-image, self-worth and more that came in the wake of her recent decision to quit drinking. She also sings unabashedly about love and bodily autonomy.

Also coming up at George’s is a benefit show for Mark Bilyeu of Big Smith, who recently suffered a major stroke. Handmade Moments, Noah Richmond’s Little Monster and Dana Louise and the Glorious Birds will perform starting at 8:30 p.m. Nov. 25 to raise money for Bilyeu, a working musician who has had to cancel all the gigs for the foreseeable future. There will also be a pie auction and donations accepted at the door. Tickets are $15 for the show. Donations are also being accepted at
