Calendar Pick: Claire Cronin / Wednesday, Feb. 24 @ Dodd Galleries

Thanks to Gabe Vodicka and Flagpole for this mention!

“UGA creative writing PhD candidate and recent Los Angeles transplant Claire Cronin specializes in a deceptively delicate style of folk music that quickly dissipates but leaves its mark behind—the sound of faint memories, warm breath in winter. Over and Through, a collection of 10 songs culled from the past several years of writing and recording and released last September on cassette via the Ba Da Bing label, is a fine showcase of Cronin’s raw talent, featuring shades of Jason Molina and Chan Marshall. She’ll appear on campus in the Dodd Galleries for a special afternoon performance, joined by Ezra Buchla on viola and tenor guitar.”

Wednesday, February 24

4 p.m. FREE!

OVER AND THROUGH // cassette and download

from Ba Da Bing Records:

“In anticipation of Came Down A Storm, Claire Cronin’s full band collaboration with John Dieterich (Deerhoof) which Ba Da Bing will release next Spring, we present this Best Of compiling her solo songs of the past few years. Cronin’s songs are sparse, deep, and dark, and her gravelly voice reaches unexpected levels of emotional beauty. There’s something Jason Molina going on here, by way of Karen Dalton and Neil Young. Cronin is currently working towards a PhD in poetry at University of Georgia, and her lyrics reflect the intelligence and insight of someone so devoted to the written word.”
