|Lauren Sheehan plays Cannon Beach on Feb. 28.
According to Reed Magazine (2/08), “Lauren has the
authenticity, the sound and the knowledge of the folk/blues genre that
other acts can only aspire to."
Lauren Sheehan is a charismatic songster, an interpreter
of songs learned from some of America's greatest folk and blues artists.
She is known for her voice, which slides through old lyrics like clear
water through a smooth creek bed. Her performances are memorable for the
authentic range of her material: from unaccompanied ballads, to boozy
Memphis blues, to old time banjo tunes, to old country songs and eclectic
Lauren grew up in New England where she studied classical
guitar as a child and became infected by the spirit of fiddle music at
contra dances in western Massachusetts. She wrote her thesis on American
folk music at Reed College before spending a number of years playing in
small ensembles while founding, administering, and teaching in independent
schools. During this time, she toured in New England, Ireland and the
Pacific Northwest. She retired from teaching in 2003 and dedicated herself
to full-time performing and recording. Lauren's passion for learning directly
from other musicians has led her into the homes and front porches of the
musical legends who passed on much of the material and style she presents
today. Sheehan's album Two Wings (2005) is a spirited collection of country
blues and ballads ranging from the beseeching title cut to Lauren's haunting
rendition of the old-time standard, “Red Rocking Chair.” Two
Wings was an Album of the Year finalist at the Independent Music Awards,
and was #1 on the Folk DJ airplay charts for October 2005.
Sheehan is a regular at the Waterfront Blues Festival and
other venues in the Portland, Oregon area, and has also played at events
across the country, including the International Blues Challenge in Memphis,
Tennessee, and the San Francisco Free Folk Festival.
