Matthew Ryan and Elizabeth Mitchell at Woodsongs

MATTHEW RYAN has been celebrated for his poetic lyricism. His work challenges listeners in so many ways, always cutting to the bone with a rare honesty that isn’t prone to offer easy answers. His latest ‘In the Dusk of Everything’ marks a distilled reclamation of his more primal Americana/Folk roots. With the bluntness of punk and the evocative rhythm of poetry his lyricism shines amongst these twelve deceptively simple songs of perseverance and closure via a clarity that operates in layers amid a world of struggle, beauty and sublime epiphany. www.matthewryanonline.com

 

ELIZABETH MITCHELL has been recording and performing music for children and families since 1998. Mitchell is a founding member of veteran indie rock band Ida and is one of Smithsonian Folkways’ best-selling artists alongside Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, and Ella Jenkins. She records and performs with her extended family band You Are My Flower, which includes her husband Daniel Littleton and their eleven year old daughter, Storey. Breathing contemporary heart into traditional folk songs, and transforming classic rock songs by David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, Van Morrison, and others into folk songs, Mitchell’s latest ‘Blue Skies’ makes Mitchell’s audience feel like they are part of a small picnic jam session with her and her band. youaremyflower.org
