House Show #15: Aisha Burns

INFO
Tuesday, September 15 2020
8:00 PM

Texas-based folk songwriter and violinist Aisha Burns joins us for SPACE House Shows, our weekly live stream series on Instagram, every Tuesday night at 8:00 pm EST.

Born and raised in San Antonio, Texas, violinist, vocalist and songwriter Aisha Burns began playing the violin when she was 10 years old and has been touring and recording since 2006. Soon after moving to Austin in 2005, she gained her start with folk-rock outfit Alex Dupree and the Trapdoor Band, and joined the instrumental ensemble Balmorhea on violin in 2007. After years of secret singing, she released her solo debut Life in the Midwater in 2013. Called “twisting, ethereal…arresting” by Dazed Magazine, and praised for its “delicate intimacy” by NPR, Life in the Midwater explored mortality and relationships with candor and wisdom.

Her new album Argonauta, is a collection of songs about her struggle with the grief of losing her mother, while also navigating a new relationship, and ultimately trying to figure out what the new normal is for her life.

These shows are member-supported and it’s because of our members’ generosity that we’re able to run this concert series and ensure that all performers are paid. We firmly believe in compensating artists fairly and these times are no different.

To further support this program, please donate to @space-gallery on Venmo or at space538.networkforgood.com during each concert. We will split all donations 50/50 between the musicians and Maine-based organizations focused on racial and social justice.

To watch, head to SPACE’s Instagram page, @space538. At 8:00 pm, click on our profile picture to watch the live video performance. You will need to have an Instagram account to view.

Due to a performer’s possible Covid-19 exposure and rain in the forecast, the status of the July 25th Steve Gunn and William Tyler show at Greenwood Garden is unclear. We will update all ticket holders and the public on Saturday, July 24th with more information.
