Next Arklow Roots Music gig, 14 Oct. 2015

Brendan O'Regan announces that the next show at Arklow Roots Music presents singer/ songwriter Krista Detor from Indiana, who is touring her new (sixth) album, Barely. Brendan adds:

Krista plays piano and accordion and will be accompanied by Dave Weber on guitar and Mike Lindaur on bass. Venue is The Breffni, Main St., Arklow on Wed. 14 Oct. at 8.00 p.m. She is a regular visitor to Ireland and gives a wonderful live show. The Allmusic Guide calls her 'an artist of rare ability with a deep poetic gift', and Rolling Stone 'a small miracle'.

Krista Detor’s solo albums have reached national and international prominence. She's shared stages with Victor Wooten, Loudon Wainwright, the Neville Bros, and Suzanne Vega, among many others.

Not by any stretch of the imagination bluegrass, but 'roots' music whose roots may be found tangled up with those of bluegrass if one digs deep enough. It could be fun to work out an instrumental setting for 'Middle of a breakdown'...
