Are two singer-songwriters better than one? That’s what Portland, Oregon’s Anna Tivel and Nashville’s Maya de Vitry think, which is why they’re sharing the stage on a month-long tour that comes to Peninsula’s G.A.R. Hall this week. The two multi-instrumentalists will each play their own set, as well as accompany each other on some songs.
De Vitry is the former fiddler and vocalist for the Stray Birds, whom she played with for nearly a decade, before finding her music going in a different direction. (She also broke off a romantic involvement with a fellow band member). Her harder and less traditional solo debut Adaptations came out at the beginning of this year, featuring lyrics that were more personal and intimate. She’s already at work on a new album to be released next year.
As for Tivel, she’s released four albums under her own name since 2014, the most recent one being The Question earlier this year. Like many of the most celebrated singer/songwriters, she focuses on the lives of people in the shadows, ordinary people struggling through life, giving her music a sober cast.
Tickets are $16 in advance, $20 day of show.
