Melissa Ferrick

Naked Soul

Friday, May 20, 2016
7:00 PM–8:30 PM

Melissa Ferrick’s twelfth original album is a homecoming. She has arrived in a place musically that is both familiar and new. The self-titled album is, in many ways, a new beginning for Ferrick. Written in just over a year, recorded at home, and released on her own relaunched label, Right On Records, the acoustic album is simple, eloquent, and honest with an undeniable level of maturity. For long-time fans, this will be a welcome new arrival. For those who are just discovering Ferrick, this is a superb way to be introduced. A completely solo effort in its process, creation, and release, Ferrick is marking the middle of her career with a perfect return to songwriting and herself.

The musicians in the series draw upon the universal themes inherent in Himalayan art—spirituality, peace, tolerance, wisdom, compassion—on select Friday evenings. Learn More
