2/25 Live From Studio A: Gaelynn Lea

Feb 25, 2016

When Duluth musician Gaelynn Lea joined us in Studio A on February 25, 2016, little did any of us know that the very next day she'd get the news that she'd won NPR's Tiny Desk contest. 

After 20 years of playing the violin and releasing albums with projects including Murder of Crows (with Al Sparhawk of Low), Snöbarn, and The Getarounds, Lea released her first solo album in November. All the Roads that Lead us Home features many of Lea's favorite fiddle standards re-worked with the help of a looping pedal into layered, atmospheric sonic pieces. She spoke with Christine Dean about her songwriting,  her recent decision to be more vocal on behalf of people with disabilities, and her plans to try touring for the first time.
