Event Description:
Princeton Coffeehouse Presents ~ Eliza Gilkyson

Austin singer/songwriter and activist Eliza Gilkyson will perform at the Princeton Coffeehouse on Saturday, March 23 at 7:30 p.m.
Gilkyson entered the music world as a teenager, recording demos for her father, the legendary songwriter Terry Gilkyson.  Since then she has released 20 recordings of her own and her songs have been covered by such notables as Joan Baez, Bob Geldof, Tom Rush and Rosanne Cash.
 
An award-winning songwriter, Gilkyson has appeared on NPR, Austin City Limits, Mountain Stage, XM Radio, and Air America Radio. She tours worldwide as a solo artist. Inducted into the Austin Music Hall of Fame, she has been nominated for a Grammy Award twice (2006 and 2015).
 
Gilkyson is active in the Austin musical and political community and works with the environmental organization Save Our Springs. Along with the environment,  
the issues of race, patriarchy and global injustice are at the heart of her activism.
 
Secularia, her recently released album, is a collection of spiritually charged songs. The new collection features a performance with the acclaimed Tosca String Quartet, cameos with Shawn Colvin, gospel singer Sam Butler, and a duet with her friend, the late Jimmy LaFave.
Glide Magazine wrote of the songwriter’s achievement in Secularia: “Eliza Gilkyson, twenty albums in, seems to be marshaling all her inner emotions, her feminist and political activism, as she challenges conventional religious beliefs while beseeching us to be more accountable in these divisive times.”
