Carrie Newcomer is a songwriter, recording artist, performer and educator. She has been described as a “prairie mystic” by the Boston Globe and “asks all the right questions” by Rolling Stone, “a voice as rich as Godiva chocolate.” by The Austin Statesman, and "She's the kind of artist whose music makes you stop, think and then say, 'that is so true” by The Dallas Morning News."
Rosanne Cash says “Carrie Newcomer is a touchstone of authenticity in an image-driven, media defined musical world. She is a beautiful singer and songwriter and deeply refreshing.” Rolling Stone calls her “Rapturously tuneful. . .Newcomer’s materials asks all the right questions and refuses to settle for easy answers.” And Barbara Kingsolver has declared her a “poet, storyteller, snake-charmer, good neighbor, friend and lover, minister of the wide-eyed gospel of hope and grace. . . .”
Discover for yourself. Join Bridger Folk Music Society on April 9 for a rare evening of “music that explores the personal, political and spiritual with compassion, insight and wit” featuring Carrie Newcomer.
8/31/2016 - Bridger Folk kicks off a new season with 3hattrio from Utah’s Zion Canyon Country. Come join us and experience their outstanding musicianship and unique sound--American Desert Music--which responds to the natural world. They express the desert experientially from a daily-ness of watching light off distant mesas and hearing the way sound plays off sheer sandstone cliffs. Then they play music. They don’t over-think it.
3hattrio’s new CD, “Solitaire,” will be released September 9. The concert in Logan will feature many of the groups new songs. An 8 minute documentary about 3hattrio will be released by Radio/Video West in September and the group has just been booked at a prestigious festival in Glasgow, Scotland this winter. This will be 3hattrio’s first European tour.
