Nashville Americana Singer Amy Speace Warms the Night at Oberlin’s Riverdog Gallery

Sat 1/13 @ 7:30PM

Update: Fri 1/12: Concert cancelled due to weather

Those who like singer/songwriters such as Lucinda Williams, whose music, tinged with country and folk is delivered with a weathered, lonely ache, will most likely enjoy Amy Speace, a Baltimorian-turned-Nashville-ite who has released a half dozen albums in the last 15 years including 2015’s That Kind of Girl.

Like Williams, whose career didn’t really kick into high career until she was in her 40s, Speace is no kid and her music is all better for it. In her previous life — before being discovered and promoted by legendary folksinger Judy Collins in 2006 — she was an actress in New York and it shows in her keen sense of how to shape a narrative, both as a songwriter and a singer.

She’s returning to the Riverdog Retreat for the third time, this time to the indoor gallery. And she’ll be bringing a friend/collaborator from Nashville, Megan Palmer.

Riverdog says they’ll be doing cabaret seating for the first time with tables assigned in the order of reservations and general seating in the back. Admission is $15 at the door. As usual, you’re welcome to bring your own food and drink.
