A Blue Rock Christmas with Amy Speace and Friends - Dec 8th-9th
A Blue Rock Christmas with Amy Speace and Friends Join us for our studio holiday tradition of songs and artists in the round. Blue Rock will be decked out for the season, filled with the joy of community and, of course, the delightful aroma of Dodee's chocolate chip cookies.
Amy Speace: A time traveler, a timeless artist, Speace's voice and songs serve as a bridge from the past to the present in folk music. Originally from Baltimore, Speace studied literature at Amherst College then moved to NYC to train as a classical actress with The National Shakespeare Conservatory. She wrote her first song at age 30 and began playing acoustic clubs in NYC as a sideline to her acting career, until, in 2006, she was discovered by Judy Collins who signed Speace to her imprint, Wildflower Records. Amy moved to East Nashville in 2009 after signing with indie label Thirty Tigers, releasing "Land Like A Bird" in 2011 and "How To Sleep In A Stormy Boat" in 2013, a song cycle inspired by Shakespeare, which landed her a feature on NPR's "All Things Considered". Her latest release, "That Kind Of Girl," made many critics Best Of 2015 lists. Speace is also 1/3 of Applewood Road, a roots trio with Emily Barker and Amber Rubarth. Their eponymous debut (Gearbox Records) made rave 5 star reviews in the UK and they played Glastonbury and Cambridge Folk Music Festival and joined Mary Chapin Carpenter on her UK tour. Speace's songs have been recorded by Judy Collins, New-Grass Trio Red Molly, Memphis Blues Hall of Fame Artist Sid Selvidge and many others.
