BRIGID MAE POWER ( Tompkins Square ) w/ ED ASKEW BAND (Drag City, Tin Angel)

  • wonders of nature 131 Grand Street Brooklyn, NY, 11249 United States (map)

BRIGID MAE POWER

 is an Irish singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who, like Judie SillMicky Newburyor Linda Perhacs before her, paints her songs in dreamily expansive strokes, transporting earthly compositions into universal and exultant realms. Her self-titled debut on Tompkins Square was a majestic suite of reverb-swathed laments for voice, guitar, piano, accordion, and harmonium, recorded at the Portland studio of key musical foil Peter Broderick. Themes include transformation, change, motherhood, acceptance, strength, courage and trust. In the words of Power, the album is about “trusting if you lose yourself or your way — you can come back”.

ED ASKEW BAND -  

The singer-songwriter / painter moved to New York for a few months in 1967 where he met Bernard Stollman of ESP-Disk, who offered him a contract. Between 1968 and 1986, Ed lived, mostly, in New Haven; doing occasional shows with his band, and later doing solo shows there. Around 1987, Ed moved to New York City, where he continues to write and record songs, and occasionally perform.
