Carole King is a four-time Grammy-Award winner and the first woman to receive the Gershwin Prize for popular song from Library of Congress in 2013. But I still don’t think gets the credit she deserves as one of most important songwriters of the 20th century. Sure, she has industry accolades and a heap of gold records, but how many people do you know that gush about how great she is? Local songstress Susan Greenbaum does. She’s a serious King devotee. On Friday, Jan. 22, Greenbaum plays her annual homage to King with her performance of the singer and songwriter’s 1971 solo masterpiece, “Tapestry,” at Ashland Coffee and Tea. A continual crowd pleaser that packs them in year after year, she plays the album in its entirety as well as her own, King-inspired compositions. Doors open for the tribute at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20-$23. ashlandcoffeeandtea.com.
