The Fiddle & Bow Society Presents Lindsay Straw
Friday, January 19th, 2018
8:00 PM
The Fiddle & Bow Society will present Lindsay Straw at the Muddy Creek Music Hall on January 19. Beirt le Chéile (Megan Irby and Don Penzien) will open. Traditional ballads have been a source of inspiration for Lindsay Straw since her childhood in Montana, but she truly grew into the art when she became immersed in Boston’s Irish and folk music scenes. There she began to tie together the threads of the traditions she was most passionate about: English, Scottish, Irish and American songcraft. She recently released her second solo album spotlighting female-positive traditional songs. Throughout, Straw’s tender vocals and careful arrangements draw out the inner depths of these old songs, telling tales of women from beyond the ages. “She has a perfect ballad-singer’s voice.” - fRoots
