Eliza Gilkyson to Perform at the Circle of Friends Coffeehouse on Sept. 27

Sep 16, 2014 04:13PM ● By Pamela Johnson
The Circle of Friends Coffeehouse is celebrating our 25th anniversary with a lineup of outstanding performers. Starting us off on September 27th at 8PM is Grammy nominated Texas singer/songwriter Eliza Gilkyson. Eliza is a politically minded, poetically gifted singer-songwriter who has become one of the most respected musicians in Folk and Americana music circles.

She has appeared on NPR, Austin City Limits, Mountain Stage, and Etown among many others and has toured with Richard Thompson, Patty Griffin and Mary Chapin Carpenter. She has been inducted into the Austin Music Hall of Fame alongside legends Willie Nelson, Townes Van Zandt, and Nanci Griffith, and received a Grammy nomination for her 2006 CD “Paradise Hotel”.
Eliza’s music has always reflected her vivid vision of the world around her, full of joys and sorrows, each song a window into a life of struggle and triumph in a world she feels is “poised on the edge of moral, economic and environmental bankruptcy.”
Her previous release, “Roses at the End of Time”, illuminates the issues, the inspirations and the agonies of our time, and the struggle to remain human in the midst of multi-dimensional crises.
Her newest recording, “The Nocturne Diaries”, is out now and already earning accolades. World-class guitarist Jim Henry will be performing with Eliza.
"Gilkyson doesn't pull any punches. She graces the music with her lush and passionate voice; a dark and lonely sound, hope and satisfaction, and edgy lyrics with piercing imagery round out the whole." - New York Times
