Joan Shelley with Maiden Radio
September 14, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm $10
Joan Shelley quickly follows her acclaimed 2014 album Electric Ursa with Over and
Even, a quieter, more contemplative set recorded in her home state of Kentucky.
Shelley has been praised by Rolling Stone, NPR and Pitchfork, and The New York
Times recently wrote that “her music is folky and pastoral, with a sense of scale
that makes her humble about her place in mankind and the universe, and her songs
are serene but never complacent.”
Maiden Radio is the old-time trio of Joan Shelley, Cheyenne Mize, & Julia Purcell.
The band hales from Louisville, Kentucky. They favor traditional songs from their
home state of Kentucky, re-arranged for three-part harmony (and three of the
loveliest voices you may hear). While showing a clear reverence and love for the
great singers of the past, their music is timeless & beautiful, and the original
compositions played at their shows (and that are occasionally on their recordings)
are indistinguishable from the tunes people have been listening to for ages & ages.
