“With a knowing eye on the past, Eliza Gilkyson is making Folk Music for the 21st century and it’s a delightful thing to hear!”—Austin Chronicle Roaring Brook is proud to present a full evening with Grammy-nominated Texas songwriter-guitarist Eliza Gilkyson. She has toured worldwide as a solo artist, as part of Red Horse with John Gorka and Lucy Kaplansky and in support of Richard Thompson, Patty Griffin and Mary Chapin Carpenter. Eliza was inducted into the Austin Music Hall of Fame alongside Willie Nelson, Nanci Griffith and Townes Van Zandt. Her fine discography includes Roses At The End Of Time, Beautiful World, Lost and Found and Land of Milk and Honey.
Her songs have been recorded by Roseanne Cash, Tom Rush and Joan Baez. Garnering great reviews and creating a lasting legacy of her own, she is the daughter of legendary songwriter Terry Gilkyson whose hits include, “Green Fields,” “Memories Are Made of This“ and “The Bare Necessities” from Disney’s Movie, The Jungle Book. Tonight’s standout selections may include “Slouching Towards Bethlehem,” “Tender Mercies,” “Easy Rider” and “The Party’s Over.” The New York Times says “ Gilkyson doesn’t pull any punches. She graces the music with her lush and passionate voice, a dark and lonely sound, hope and satisfaction, and edgy lyrics with piercing imagery round out the whole.”
