Spring Green, WI
Share this event:



Classically trained violinist and songwriter Gaelynn Lea has been bewitching scores of fans with her experimental and ambient takes on fiddle music, an approach that incorporates her love of traditional tunes, songwriting, poetry and sonic exploration. Her work most recently won NPR Musics 2016 Tiny Desk Contest, a competition drawing submissions of original songs from more than 6,000 musicians across the country. Gaelynn Lea has been playing violin for over twenty years, developing an improvisational style all her own. She has performed alongside many notable Minnesota musicians over the years, including Alan Sparhawk, Charlie Parr, and Billy McLaughlin.

On March 3, 2016, Gaelynn Lea was named the winner of NPR Musics second-ever Tiny Desk Contest. The video entry of her original song Someday Well Linger in the Sun rose to the top of over 6,100 submissions from around the nation, chosen as the unanimous favorite among the contests six judges. The very next week, Gaelynn performed a moving Tiny Desk Concert, at which the shows host Bob Boilen said there was hardly a dry eye.

Gaelynn Leas musical reach has expanded significantly because of the Tiny Desk Contest. She began a touring nationally in September 2016, and in December 2016 she performed in Europe for the first time as support for Lows Christmas tour. Gaelynn Lea will continue this musical journey well into 2017, touring throughout the US and UK.

In addition to performing, Gaelynn Lea has had a busy year in the recording studio. She released her debut solo album entitled All the Roads that Lead Us Home in November 2015. It pays homage to the traditional fiddle tunes and beloved standards that Gaelynn has been playing for over a decade. But of course, there is a twist! Gaelynn used her Memory Man looping pedal to create winding layers of sound underneath these familiar melodies.

She released a version of her Tiny Desk Contest winning track, Someday Well Linger in the Sun, on May 5, 2016. Several months later Gaelynn recorded and released a 6-track EP titled The Songs We Sing Along the Way, backed by guitarist Al Church. In November 2016, she followed up this EP with a full-length holiday album, Deepest Darkness, Brightest Dawn, once again accompanied by Al Church.

In addition to performing, Gaelynn also loves to do speaking engagements about disability, overcoming challenges, and the joy of music. She has a congenital disability called Osteogenesis Imperfecta, or Brittle Bones Disease. Gaelynn is a strong voice in the disability community; she uses her music as a platform to advocate for people with disabilities and to promote positive social change. In October 2016, Gaelynn was invited to Yale to give a TEDx Talk titled Disability and Sexuality: Forging Identity in a World that Leaves You Out. Gaelynn Lea believes society must work harder to prioritize accessibility so people with disabilities can participate fully in their communities and use their talents and gifts without barriers or discrimination.
