American violinist and songwriter Gaelynn Lea is heading to Wharf Chambers in Leeds on Thursday December 13.

The intimate concert will feature her unique takes on traditional fiddle tunes and haunting original songs.

Gaelynn, who will be accompanied by fellow Minnesota musician Dave Mehling, is making this stop in the city as a part of her third album release tour for her newest recording, Learning How to Stay.

When Gaelynn Lea won NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Contest in 2016, her two decades as a hardworking and talented Duluth musician finally crystallized in national recognition.

Since then, Gaelynn has played over 425 shows in 42 states and seven countries.

Tickets £9 in advance. Doors open at 7.30pm. The show is wheelchair accessible.
