About Fruitlands Fall Concert Series: Kris Delmhorst

We are thrilled to announce that Fall concerts are returning this year in the Fruitlands open-air event tent. This year’s series of intimate performances celebrates diverse women’s voices in art and music today, featuring an incredible all-female lineup of talented musicians.

On September 8th we welcome Kris Delmhorst to the stage!

Called “bold and brilliant” by the Boston Globe and “transcendent” by the LA Times, Kris Delmhorst is a veteran of the indie Americana world, with vivid songwriting, soulful delivery, and adventurous arrangements that stretch the limits of genre. She’s been compared to artists as various as Anaïs Mitchell, Lucinda Williams, and Juana Molina – though she cites Rickie Lee Jones, in all her fearless joy and complexity, as an artistic north star.

With Long Day in the Milky Way, her eighth album (out August 14 2020), Delmhorst takes a surefooted stride forward. Lush with layered vocals and immersive instrumentation, it finds the gifted lyricist at the height of her craft and working with a strong sense of purpose. World-weary but hopeful, the songwriter responds to a time of global anxiety with a missive straight from the chest. Delmhorst invites the listener to look both out and in, to take in the full kaleidoscope of life’s contradictions – persistence, frustration, heartbreak, love – and to locate the grace within the struggle, the beauty in the dark.

Concert begins at 6:30PM, Doors Open 6PM
