Emily Triggs
Sat Feb 26th
1:00 – 3:00 pm

Following Emily’s widely accepted release ‘When Guinevere Went Under’, Triggs is busting down walls that confine an artist to expectations and genres with her soon to be released album ‘Middletown’. Middletown captures the undeniably authentic style of songwriting and arrangement that reflects the world of music Emily grew up in. A prolific songwriter with a passion for storytelling, her songs showcase her honest, pure vocals. While sometimes likened to Patty Griffin and Michelle Shocked, Emily has her own brand of folk/roots filled with a lifetime of music and influences
