With timeless vocal purity and an Appalachian poet’s soul, Kentucky native Joan Shelley has held audiences rapt everywhere from Nashville to New York by way of Newport. With roots in the American and British folk revival, her serenely evocative songs don’t tell stories as much as they paint pictures. Her most recent album, Over and Even, was called “one of the most beautiful releases of the year” by NPR Music and “as compelling a record as that genre has seen” (Pitchfork). During this intimate evening of song, Shelley invites us into a world of limitless beauty.
