A brave composer, performer and traveler, Marina Evans will perform as part of the Cape Ann Museum’s Music in the Courtyard series on Friday, July 29. Evans combines strong, sultry vocals with traditional folk americana and an indie pop edge to create a sound that is all her own. Her studio work deftly combines various styles, genres, and instrumentation – from sweet ballads to folk anthems to straight up rock and roll – and paints a picture of a versatile and passionate artist.
In recent years Evans has written and released 3 original EPs and a full-length album, and has traveled with her music across the United States – from Portland to Nashville, New Orleans to Los Angeles, and everywhere in between. Marina has performed in London and in Italy as well, where she wrote, recorded, and co-produced her two records The Tuscan Sessions and Unbound with Italian guitarist and producer Bernardo Baglioni.
Her unique sound and powerful stage presence have earned her opening sets for such legends as Judy Collins, Jonathan Edwards, Loudon Wainwright III, and Ellis Paul; she has also been honored with two consecutive nominations for Female Performer of the Year at the New England Music Awards (2014 and 2015). A bold, honest performer, clever lyricist, and a dedicated songwriter, Marina Evans is a star on the rise whose songs and spirit are not to be missed.
This program is free and open to the public.
