Bomb the Twist Presents: Gaelynn Lea + Support

Bomb the Twist Presents: Gaelynn Lea + Support


Classically trained violinist and songwriter Gaelynn Lea has been bewitching scores of fans with her haunting original songs and experimental takes on traditional fiddle music, creating her signature sound with just a violin, her voice and a looping pedal. Join her for an intimate show at Wharf Chambers, accompanied by fellow Minnesota musician and frequent collaborator Dave Mehling.

Support is from Lisa Marie Glover, Fig by Four and Crake.

In 2016, Gaelynn was named the winner of NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Concert when her original song Someday We’ll Linger in the Sun rose to the top of over 6,100 submissions from around the US, chosen as the unanimous favourite among the contest’s six judges. Actively performing since 2006, she has contributed to a number of musical projects and played alongside many notable musicians over the years, including Alan Sparhawk and Low, Charlie Parr, Billy McLaughlin, and The Decemberists.

Her new album, Learning How To Stay, is an 11 song collection that runs the gamut sonically from pensive and luscious to aggressive and intentioned, from folk to decidedly pop, and even includes a couple of traditional fiddle tunes. With her singular voice and deeply affecting violin, she guides the listener through a journey that explores the contrasting nature of existence dark and light, birth and death, anger and forgiveness, sorrow and joy.

Gaelynn is also a public speaker and activist around the topics of disability, finding inner freedom, and the power of music, using her music as a platform to advocate for people with disabilities and to promote positive social change.
