Returning to our intimate theater, with collaborator Nathan Salsburg, supporting her latest release, Like the River Loves the Sea on No Quarter Records. The album, recorded at Iceland鈥檚 Greenhouse Studio, has received high critical praise and features fellow Kentuckian Will Oldham on vocals. Though the focus remains on Shelley鈥檚 pure voice and weaving guitar picking, this album features levitating and ambient textures from violin and cello orchestrations of Icelandic sisters 脼贸rd铆s Ger冒ur J贸nsd贸ttir and Sigr煤n Kristbj枚rg J贸nsd贸ttir. Multi-instrumentalist Nathan Bowles, from Durham, NC, opens the show.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m.
