Seth Glier’s new album Birds is steeped in conflict and contradictions. There’s grief and loss, strength and resilience, doubt and dismay; but also a sense of optimism as Glier confronts heavy topics and wrestles them into the daylight.

Special guest opening for Seth – Crys Matthews:
A powerful message, with a voice to match. A prolific lyricist and composer, Matthews has found inspiration in her surroundings; from driving through the Blue Ridge Mountains to the compelling and heart-breaking love story of Richard and Mildred Loving. Thoughtful, realistic and emotional, Matthews’ songs remind us why music indeed soothes the soul.
