And its about to happen!
Cannot wait to hear her haunting voice as she plays her eerie alt-folk songs on with this unique
alt-folk artwork of a guitar!
As if that isn’t special enough, the guitar’s builder, the amazing Rachel Rosenkrantz will also be performing that night with Two Selkies on a variety of acoustic folk intruments!! With extraordinary folk harpist Reed McLaren by her side, and Quarterly and Longshoreman
