This event has been and gone.
Violinist and songwriter Gaelynn Lea performs haunting original songs and unique takes on traditional fiddle tunes, often using live looping to build up a richly layered sound. With her singular voice and deeply-affecting violin, Gaelynn and her songs guide the listener through a journey that explores dark and light, birth and death, anger and forgiveness, sorrow and joy.
Winner of NPR Music's 2016 Tiny Desk Contest, Gaelynn has toured extensively in her native USA, as well as being a regular visitor to the UK and mainland Europe.
