    Folk

    Gaelynn Lea is a musician from Duluth, MN. She has been playing violin for over twenty years. First classically trained, she began learning traditional Celtic and American fiddle tunes at the age of 18, and later ventured into songwriting. Currently she performs solo sets and occasionally collaborates with Alan Sparhawk (Low) in their atmospheric alternative duo called The Murder of Crows. While performing, Gaelynn uses her Memory Man looping pedal to create winding layers of sound underneath traditional fiddle melodies and her original songs.  She recorded her debut solo album, "All the Roads that Lead Us Home" in November 2015. 

    Gaelynn Lea was named the winner of NPR Music’s second-ever Tiny Desk Contest on March 3, 2016. Her music video entry rose to the top of over 6,100 entries from around the nation, chosen as the unanimous favorite among the contest’s six judges. The very next week, Gaelynn performed a moving Tiny Desk Concert, at which the show’s host Bob Boilen said “there was hardly a dry eye.” Gaelynn is visiting New York City for the first time in April 2016 as a part of the Tiny Desk Tour with NPR and is excited to add this show at the iconic Knitting Factory Brooklyn.
