Music Scene: Rebecca Folsom and other area shows set for Sept. 22–28
Rebecca Folsom, a singer with a four-octave range and a songwriter with “inspiring tales of human heartbreak, redemption, and freedom,” is set to bring her music to Grand Junction.
Folsom will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 22, at the KAFM Radio Room, 1310 Ute Ave.
The Boulder native “shares those songs with exquisite intimacy in a solo performance, with soaring and angelic harmonies in a duo or trio, and with blazing grooves from her incredibly talented band,” according to rebeccafolsom.com.
Folsom released two CDs in 2016: “Extraordinary Days” and “Little Medicines” were “born out of wiring 52 new songs in a year.”
The song “Better Times,” from the “Extraordinary Days” album, hit No. 1 on the National Folk Radio DJ Chart and spent months on the Top 50 National Americana Country Radio Chart. The song “Colorado” worked its way to No. 22 on the chart.
Folk DJ’s list of top artists in 2016 included Folsom at No. 8.
Tickets to the show cost $12 in advance, and $15 at the door. Tickets can be purchased at kafmradio.org or by calling 241-8801.
