Audrey Auld

Audrey Auld is a do-gooder in a Tasmanian devil disguise. I met her briefly at the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival last summer where she performed a set at the historic Crystal Theatre, hushing the crowd with songs like Love You Like the Earth.

Her songs, called contrite by some music publishing geniuses in Nashville, have brought more tears to my eyes than any artist I've ever seen/heard. Now that's real country music.

Audrey played last night on the porch of Gram's Place, and will do a slew of shows (including a couple house concerts) around Florida. Today she'll do an in-store performance at Vinyl Fever in Tampa at 3 p.m. She'll also appear on 88.5 WMNF this Thursday from 9-10 a.m. on Pete Gallagher's Florida Folk Show.

Here's a video she made performing Bread and Roses.
