Hailing from Louisville, Kentucky, singer/songwriter Joan Shelley brings the traditional attitudes of folk singers across Ireland, Scotland and England and blends them with the dispositions of Dolly Parton and Roger Miller.
Veering away from confessional archetypes, Shelley instead likes to concentrate on her sense of time and place; how seasons change our surroundings, landscapes, waterfalls and flowers and how, as humans, we look to these natural miracles to try to make sense of the world. She’s shared the stage with artists such as Bonnie “Prince” Billy and Doug Paisley, opened for the likes of Wilco and Andrew Bird, while Jeff Tweedy produced her self-titled fifth album.
Plus support from James Elkington
