I first came across the 'ghost folk' music of Allysen Callery a little more than a year ago as she toured Europe with Boston musician Ryan Lee Crosby. I was taken aback about the quiet strength of her deliveries and the delicate way she relocates her listeners. After just a few moments of hearing her play, the room is transformed. The day is changed. The wild, frenzied world we occupy needs more Allysens and so does The Outlaw Roadshow! We're delighted to share that Allysen will make her Outlaw Roadshow on Saturday 10/17 at the Bowery Electric. Be transfixed by her music!
Allysen Callery is an American folksinger whose delicate, austere sound has been compared to classic British folk artists like Sandy Denny and Vashti Bunyan. A native of Rhode Island, Callery taught herself to sing and play finger-style guitar by listening to her parents' collection of U.K. folk records from the '60s and '70s. She tours in Europe regularly, and played SXSW festival in 2014.
"Her lilting voice and heartfelt lyrics are eerily close to the work of the late British songstress Sandy Denny, the highest compliment I could hand down to this brilliant artist."
