Join us for an evening of music with singer-songwriter Marilyn Walker, joined by Eric Elison, in Highland City Club's gardens"In the autumn of 2015, after a lifetime of rewriting lyrics from other songs, Marilyn Walker’s first fully formed song was “delivered” to her, seemingly straight out of the ethers. She headed off to Nashville, spent time with some of America’s greatest troubadours, and has not stopped since. Her lyrics cover themes of homelessness, personal loss, climate change, and the absurdity, humor, and sometimes sadness that can be found in everyday situations. Vance Gilbert called her “the Christine Lavin of Boulder.” Mary Gauthier says she “has a great wit.” Friends and fans say she lights up the room with clever lyrics and a voice as clear as a bell. “My songs are about life, and the threads that connect us as human beings. There is joy and great healing in sharing these experiences through ‘song storytelling.’ I like to point out the absurdity of situations that can feel huge when you are in them. But I treat us all with a great deal of compassion, too. My songs are gifts. I would be selfish not to share them.”After killing it at open mics around town and at song festivals (she was asked back as a headliner after her first ever open mic), she will do a full-length show featuring her original music as well as that of a few other talented singer-songwriter friends at Highland City Club on June 19 at 7 PM. Don’t miss this chance to say that you saw her when.Singer-Songwriter Eric Elison, who will share some songs from his recent CD, Westside Café. Eric is super talented and has been compared to Gordon Lightfoot."
