Joan Shelley, folk musician
June 8 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The Louisville, Kentucky-based singer and songwriter is often compared to Joni Mitchell, Nick Drake, and to Fairport Convention’s Sandy Denny. Her graceful melodies, spellbinding vocals, and poignant lyrics create timeless, quietly minimalist songs that evoke old-time country, ’60s folk, and Appalachian traditions.
Joan Shelley is accompanied by ace guitarist (and Alan Lomax archivist) Nathan Salsburg, with an opening set by fingerpicking guitar virtuoso Sam Moss.
