You can find more details about the concert series and a sampling of her music at www.hummingbirdconcerts.org
Chicago-based singer-songwriter Edie Carey is known for her unmistakable soulful voice, her intelligent, heart-grabbing songs, but perhaps most especially for her warm, engaging presence on - and off - stage. As much a part of her show as the music itself, Edie's wry and often self-mocking humor makes audiences feel as though they have just spent an evening with a very close friend.
Carey has been performing at festivals, colleges, and listening rooms across the US, Canada and the UK since 1999. Her soon-to-be-released seventh album, "Bring The Sea," as well as her last two records, was funded entirely by her loyal and steadily growing legion of fans. Her new CD, produced by Evan Brubaker, features appearances by Shawn Mullins, Glen Phillips (of Toad the Wet Sprocket), multi-instrumentalist Julie Wolf (Ani DiFranco, Indigo Girls), and violist Eyvind Kang (Bill Frisell, Laurie Anderson).
