Woonsocket Call - - FAITH -

FRANKLIN – On Nov. 17 at 8 p.m., Texas singer/song­writer El­iza Gilkyson re­turns to the Cir­cle of Friends Cof­fee­house stage.

El­iza is a twice Grammy-nom­i­nated, po­lit­i­cally minded, po­et­i­cally gifted singer-song­writer who has be­come one of the most re­spected mu­si­cians in Folk and Amer­i­cana mu­sic cir­cles. El­iza’s mu­sic has al­ways re- flected her vivid vision of the world around her, full of joys and sor­rows, each song a win­dow into a life of strug­gle and tri­umph. She has ap­peared on NPR, Austin City Lim­its, Moun­tain Stage, and Etown, among many oth­ers, and has toured with Richard Thomp­son, Patty Grif­fin and Mary Chapin Car­pen­ter. http://eliza­g­ilkyson.com/

Tracy Gram­mer and Jim Henry will be play­ing with El­iza.

“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.” said a New York Times re­view.

The Cir­cle of Friends Cof­fee­house is a non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tion af­fil­i­ated with Franklin’s First Univer­sal­ist So­ci­ety.
