Next concert: Sept. 18 – Eliza Gilkyson

It’s no secret, we love Eliza Gilkyson!

Over the course of 23 albums, Eliza has become one of the most respected musicians in Folk and Americana circles. She has appeared on NPR, Austin City Limits, Mountain Stage, eTown, Sirius/XM, Air America and more.

Her songs have been covered by Joan Baez, Bob Geldof, Tom Rush, and Roseanne Cash, and have appeared in films, PBS specials and on prime time TV.

Her music has always offered a vivid reflection of the times we live in, full of joys and sorrows, each song a window on to a world she feels is “poised on the edge of moral, economic and environmental bankruptcy.”

Her latest release, Secularia, is a spiritually charged album produced by her son, Cisco Ryder, and includes vocal and instrumental contributions by the likes of David Byrne, Bob Schneider, Shawn Colvin, Sam Butler, Jimmy LaFave, Warren Hood, Mike Hardwick, Betty Soo and more. It includes two songs written by her grandmother, and one by her dad, Terry Gilkyson, a successful folk singer and songwriter in the 1950s who crossed over with major pop success, penning songs recorded by Dean Martin, Doris Day, Frankie Layne, Burl Ives, Harry Belafonte, Johnny Cash, and many others. In the ‘60s, he wrote songs, including “Bare Necessities” for Disney’s Jungle Book.

This is Eliza’s fifth time performing at Tales from the Tavern. She will be accompanied, once again, by one of our favorite guitarists, the ever tasteful, ever soulful Nina Gerber.

We are super pleased to welcome our friends, Eliza and Nina back to Tales from the Tavern.
