Abigail Dowd, singer-songwriter hailing from the longleaf pines of the Sandhills, is coming to Isis Music Hall on Oct 9th, with fearlessly authentic fellow musician Anya Hinkle!
Abigail Dowd · 8:30pm
Abigail Dowd is a singer/songwriter/guitarist with a gift for telling stories. She grew up under the longleaf pines in the Sandhills region of North Carolina; land that could only be tamed by Scotch-Irish settlers. Dowd brings this heritage of storytelling and determination to her music and weaves together hints of Celtic melodies with the soulful gospel of the south. There are also strands of something haunting and mysterious, as unique as the journey she took to get to where she is now. Dowd comes from a long line of musicians and always knew music was her destination, and it shows. Every song is like an ethnography of the places she’s been and the people she's met along the way. Dowd's playing has been described by PopMatters as "Robust acoustic guitar and subtle tones of instrumentation that offer themselves well to the songs' feelings of reflection, carried forward most ebulliently by [her] warm, sonorous vocals." She combines her classical fingerpicking style with the edgy bass and percussion of Jason Duff to create a sound that dances between folk, rock and blues.
Anya Hinkle · 8:30pm
