Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Eliza Gilkyson is touring in support of her album "Secularia" and will perform at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 13, at Cavalcade, 201 E. Aspen Ave. in Fruita.
The Austin, Texas, native is a "politically minded" and "poetically gifted" musician who has "become one of the most respected musicians in folk and Americana music circles," according to elizagilkyson.com.
As a teenager she recorded demos for her father, "legendary songwriter Terry Gilkyson." To date she has recorded 20 albums and some of her songs have been covered by Joan Baez, Bob Geldof, Tom Rush, Rosanne Cash and others.
Released in 2018, "Secularia" is the follow-up to her Grammy-nominated 2014 release, "The Nocturne Diaries," and "is a collection of spiritually charged songs that do not fit within the parameters of traditional religious beliefs, challenging us to embrace a more inclusive perspective, to respect all life and to be accountable for our actions in these divisive times," elizagilkyson.com says.
Tickets to the Cavalcade show cost $25 and can be purchased at 970tix.com.
