Joanna Newsom
A classically trained harpist whose genre-defying work combines folk, pop, and West African polyrhythms, Joanna Newsom is one of contemporary musics most unique artists. The Nevada-City native started playing the harp at age seven, attending folk music camp in her teens, and deciding in high school that she wanted to become a composer. Newsom has emerged as a major figure in the indie folk movement, releasing several E.P.s including Walnut Whales and Yarn and Glue, and the critically acclaimed album The Milk-Eyed Mender. Newsoms complex, allegorical lyrics are a source of major discussion among fans and critics alike. This program was recorded on May 16th.
