‘One of the most influential artists on the American folk music scene’ ~ Maverick

‘Gilkyson graces the music with her lush and passionate voice’ ~ New York Times

Politically aware, with a poet’s lyrical gift, Gilkyson is enormously respected in roots-music, folk and Americana circles. She’s been nominated for a Grammy, appeared on Austin City Limits, and toured with fellow heavyweights like Richard Thompson, Patty Griffin and Mary Chapin Carpenter.

In February 2003, Gilkyson was inducted into the Austin Music Hall Of Fame alongside Willie Nelson, Townes Van Zandt, Nanci Griffith, Billy Joe Shaver, Butch Hancock and Joe Ely. In 2011, she joined her friends John Gorka and Lucy Kaplansky on Mountain Stage as part of the folk supergroup Red Horse.

This should be a very special night indeed.
