Marisa Anderson channels the history of the guitar while stretching its boundaries. Her deeply original work applies elements of minimalism, electronic music, drone and 20th century classical to compositions based on blues, jazz, gospel and country. The result is a re-imagination of American music.

Originally from Northern California, Anderson dropped out of college at nineteen to walk across the US, eventually landing in Portland, where she currently lives. Classically trained, she honed her skills playing in country, jazz and circus bands. In 2011 she released her first solo guitar record, ‘The Golden Hour’ followed by ‘Mercury’ (2013) and ‘Into The Light’ (2016). She is in demand as a collaborator and composer, contributing to recent recordings by Beth Ditto, Sharon Van Etten and Circuit Des Yeux among others, as well as creating music for short films and soundtracks.

Onstage, she is a master storyteller, bringing warmth and wit to her virtuosic performance. We are delighted to welcoming this incredible guitarist to Belfast for the very first time.

Support on the night comes from Duo Zouk (Irish/Greek bouzouki).
