Eliza Gilkyson & Nina Gerber
- Whitney Luckett [ 11/2/2009 - 15:18 ] #
Join us in a week from this Thursday for an intimate evening here at the house with Eliza Gilkyson & Nina Gerber. We're so behind bringing Eliza here that she has brought out 2 CDs since her concert here in 2005. The most recent, Beautiful world, has garnered some great reviews:
New York Times
"lush and passionate...edgy lyrics with piercing imagery"
"cathartic to the point of jubilation, brimming with radio-polished tunes"
When the Great Correction Comes , the song that inspired the recent CD turned out (unfortunately) to be rather prophetic. Graham Green provides a thoughtful review here. You might also want to check out a recent concert review here.
(Whitney confesses that one of her all time favorite songs remains Gilkyson's Requiem written in the wake of the Katrina.)
Eliza will be joined by a true musician's musician, Nina Gerber. Nina's mastery of the guitar is evidenced by her accompaniment of any of the following artists: Kate Wolf, Nanci Griffith, Greg Brown, Lucy Kaplansky, Mollie O'Brien, Dave Alvin, Karla Bonoff, John Gorka, Cheryl Wheeler, Tom Paxton, and many others.
