Singer-songwriter Caitlin Canty due in Rock Hall
ROCK HALL — Singer-songwriter Caitlin Canty will bring her country, blues, folk and rock to the Mainstay at 8 p.m. Saturday, July 9.
Canty delivers her songs with a dusky alto and a 1930s Recording King guitar. Raised in smalltown Vermont, the daughter of a school teacher and a house painter, she spent a decade in New York City cutting her teeth on both sides of the microphone — as a performer and as the first employee of a live music startup.
Her breakout record, “Reckless Skyline,” features an all-star band on 12 songs that veer between country ballads and straight-up rockers, dark blues and sparsely arranged folk. The San Francisco Chronicle lauded Canty’s “casually devastating voice and unshakable poise” and her “easy way with folk, blues and country motifs.”
Prior to “Reckless Skyline”, Canty independently released the full-length “Golden Hour,” a Western-tinged album tracked live in Maine in winter 2012.
She was the winner of the 2015 Telluride Troubadour songwriting contest and is based in East Nashville, Tenn.
Tickets are $20. For information and reservations, call 410-639-9133. ----Online: www.mainstayrockhall.org www.caitlincanty.com
