Madison Folk Music Society presents CARRIE NEWCOMER at the Friends Meeting House in Madison on Saturday, May 17, 2014. The show will start at 7:00pm and doors will open at 6:30.
Carrie Newcomer has been described as "a soaring songstress" by Billboard, a "prairie mystic by the Boston Globe Rolling Stone wrote that she asks all the right questions." One of the definitive voices of the heartland and progressive spirituality, Newcomer a has the ability for sharp observation of the world. Newcomer has attracted a devoted following with her warm voice, exquisite melodies, and an irreverent yet spiritual view of the world. As in the work of poets Mary Oliver and Wendell Berry, Newcomer's songs are based in the ordinary, and infused with images from the natural world.
Carrie's albums include the critically acclaimed Everything is Everywhere and Kindred Spirits: A Collection, Before and After (featuring a song with Mary Chapin Carpenter), The Geography of Light, Regulars & Refugees, The Age of Possibility, The Gathering of Spirits (featuring a song with Alison Krauss) and The Betty's Diner Collection on Rounder Records. In 2003, Nickel Creek recorded Newcomer's "I Should've Known Better" on their gold-selling, Grammy-winning album This Side. She was listed as one of "the 50 most influential folk musicians of the past 50 years" by Chicago's WFMT and she has been Folk Wax artist and album of the year twice.
