Art of the Song taping with Meredith Wilder
June 12, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Meredith Wilder will be performing LIVE at the Art of the Song Coffeehouse in Albuquerque Sunday, June 12th. The show will include a 20 minute interview followed by a full concert, and is part of our “Second Sunday” songwriter series at the Sol Acting Academy Theater Space, 5500 San Mateo Bl NE Suite 107, Albuquerque, NM.
Art of the Song is a public radio program heard on over 100 stations across North America. Hosts John Dillon and Viv Nesbitt interview songwriters and talk about creative process.
Meredith Wilder, or Songbird of the Sandias, is front woman of the popular Albuquerque folk band Wildewood. Its an appropriate moniker, given the appealing sweetness in Wilders voice, the transparency of her head tones, and her irresistible melodies. But there is also a dusky darkness and a wary vulnerability in both voice and lyrics that balance the sweetness and draw you deeper into her compositions. Music critic Mel Minter asks, could Wilder be the love child of Loretta Lynn and Leonard Cohen? Her songs have some of Lynns country heartache and grit, and like Cohen, shes befriended desperation, having recognized it as a fellow traveler in the human condition.
Sunday, June 12th at 7:30 PM (doors 7 pm).
$15 advance, $20 at the door.
