Emily Hurd live in Studio A
“A masterpiece…this is an album to fall into and swim in forever...” That’s what American Songwriter Senior Editor Paul Zollo wrote about Chicago-based singer/songwriter Emily Hurd, and her 2011 CD release titled Long Lost Ghosts. Since then, Emily has teamed up with fellow Chicago musicians Colby Maddox and Gregg Ostrom to create an outstanding new band that blends the sounds of bluegrass, rock, country and blues. It’s called Stone Blind Valentine and tonight at 8:00pm they’ll be performing at the Community Arts Café, 411 West 4th Street in Winston-Salem. Tickets are 10 bucks.
Emily Hurd is a multi-instrumentalist known for her bluesy piano licks and soulful vocals with eight studio albums to her credit. Long Lost Ghosts features a series of Emily’s country-folk songs which she wrote on her ukulele. Emily Hurd dropped by to talk about the music and her new band with David Ford.
