Saturday, October 1st | 8 pm | GCCR Event Hall | $8
Virginia Folk/Acoustic “Artist of the Year” Julie Clark will perform songs from her latest CD Change Your Mind along with old favorites at GCCR on Saturday, October 1st. Change Your Mind is crystal clear – both in terms of Clark’s vivid lyrics and the pristine sonic quality of the recording itself. Her unique voice and lyrics are remarkably expressive.
From the ebullient hopefulness of the opening track “Change Your Mind” to the raucous fun of “I’d Do ‘Em All (if I could),” Clark’s songwriting addresses a broad range of human experience with surprising honesty and insight. Throughout Change Your Mind, Clark sings of love in its many forms, such as the poignant hope of restoring closeness with a sibling in “Growin’ Up” and the ache of romantic longing, uniquely captured in her multi-award-winning song “Jacket.”
Clark has garnered considerable acclaim as an emerging artist. Her many accolades include winning the Kerrville New Folk Songwriting Competition (adding her name to a list of luminaries that includes Lyle Lovett, Steve Earle, Nanci Griffith and Shawn Colvin); winning 1st Place in the Great American Song Contest; and being named Folk/Acoustic Artist of the Year at the Virginia Music Awards. From her home base in Norfolk, Virginia, Clark maintains a busy national touring schedule of performances at premiere festivals and clubs such as The Barns of Wolftrap in Vienna, Virginia and The Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival and The Art House Theater in Provincetown, Massachusetts.
