An Evening with Laura Joy
Saturday, May 26, 07:00 PM - Saturday, May 26, 09:00 PM
Laura’s unique style of poetic, acoustic pop, which has been described as “folk music so pretty you’ll have to stop your ears from floating away,” (thefreegeorge.com), has earned her invitations to open for artists including Hammel on Trial, poet Staceyann Chin, Switchback, and Greg Brown, as well as being awarded as a top finalist in the Broward Folk Club Songwriter Competition in Fort Lauderdale, FL in January, 2013.
As a fixture at Midwestern festivals, Laura explains that she loves the scene because, “you never know what’s going to happen or who’s going to show up. One time I looked out at the audience and realized there were more dogs than humans. That was a neighborhood pet festival. But I’d say there’s almost a 100% guarantee a few little kids will push their way up to the front and start dancing. That’s the kind of family friendly I am, and it’s my favorite. And honestly, off-stage is where the magic happens. You get to know people, other musicians, fans… especially if everyone’s camping and making music together.”

His songs teeter on the edge of sentimental-songwriter’y-s
