Eliza Gilkyson

Eliza Gilkyson

Eliza Gilkyson, singer, songwriter and activist with Nina Gerber on guitar preforms in Ashland at the Unitarian Church as part of the St. Claire Productions Eclectic Music and More Concert Series.

The Lonesome Road Review says: Eliza Gilkyson’s “… string of nine albums recorded for Red House Records since 2000, including the trio album Red Horse, serve as a testament to her consistency and the magnitude of her talents as a vocalist, songwriter, and instrumentalist. If this were a competition, these albums would stand alongside and surpass those recorded over a similar period of time by Rosanne Cash, Lucinda Williams, and John Hiatt. Yeah, she’s that danged good.

2-time Grammy-nominated singer, a Eliza Gilkyson is a songwriter and activist who has become one of the most respected musicians in Folk, Roots, and Americana circles. She has appeared on NPR, Austin City Limits, Mountain Stage, etown, Sirius/XM, Air America Radio, and has toured worldwide as a solo artist and in support of Richard Thompson, Patty Griffin, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Dan Fogelberg.

Her songs have been covered by Joan Baez, Bob Geldof, Tom Rush, and Rosanne Cash and have appeared in films, PBS specials, and on prime-time TV. She has been inducted into the Austin Music Hall of Fame and recognized with countless Austin Music and Folk Alliance awards. Eliza’s music has always offered a vivid reflection of the times we live in, full of joys and sorrows, each song a window into a life of struggle and triumph in a world she feels is “poised on the edge of moral, economic and environmental bankruptcy.”
