Underground Alert: BRITTAIN ASHFORD

The lovely Bushwick autoharp genius Brittain Ashford played the Northeast Kingdom Den last night, and what transpired was truly awe-inspiring. Ashford sings with a startling confidence, accented beautifully by her phenomenal autoharp skills, as well as a unique variety of other instruments that I couldn't even begin to know what they're called. This is an artist who will go somewhere, trust.

Brittain self released her first album there, but for you, go i last year and is on the verge of hitting the studio for album #2. She is also launching a US tour in Brooklyn on June 6th. Full itinerary below.
Brittain Ashford - A Day At Coney Island (mp3)
