Welcome to the Folkadelphia Sessions, a weekly feature focusing on the in-studio performances recorded by the Folkadelphia crew. Here, folk musicians and singer-songwriters are given the opportunity to share songs that we have recorded in a live, intimate, and often stripped-down fashion at the WXPN studios. There is a real truth and beauty in the rawness of the whole set-up that we hope you’ll hear and enjoy!
You may not have realized it, but when you were rocking out to Black Dub, the Daniel Lanois- collaborative recording project, the vocal piping in, strong and clear, belonged to Trixie Whitley, the subject of today’s Folkadelphia Session. Trixie, in her short time on this planet (b. 1987), has been making her mark on the music and arts community. The daughter of the late singer-songwriter Chris Whitley, Trixie has been carving her own soulful songwriting niche- releasing two EPs and gearing up for a proper debut full-length Fourth Corner, which will see a U.S. release on January 29th.
Trixie was kind enough to stop in for a solo session before she performed at MilkBoy on November 3; you can listen to her performance below, and download it for free at Folkadelphia’s Bandcamp page. For more information on Trixie, be sure to investigate her music further and watch a new video.
