Event description
Marian Runk + Joybird

About this Event

Marian Runk was born in Dallas, TX, to a symphony musician and a science teacher. During childhood road trips to the Texas hill country, she learned the Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt “Trio” album word for word. Those country harmonies lay dormant until the late aughts, when she started singing and playing guitar & banjo in Chicago. Today, Marian writes songs about love, loss, death, restlessness, and the natural world. Her debut album, A Few Feet from the Ground, hovers in and around the genres of country, folk, and blues. It offers both lush full band and spare solo arrangements that highlight a clear voice and emotional arc.

Joybird is Chicago songwriter and fiddler/multi-instrumentalist Jess McIntosh. Backed by Chicago's busiest traditional and improvisatory musicians, who happen to be some of her best friends, Joybird makes music that is "at times playful, at times immersed in longing...fiercely hopeful and deeply communal." -Abigail Zimmer (Author of girls their tongues). “An excellent storyteller...with an impressively direct and matter of fact way of looking at our world today.” -Laura Land (Chicago Crowd Surfer)
