Marisa Anderson channels the history of the guitar while stretching its boundaries. Her deeply original work applies elements of minimalism, electronic music, drone and 20th century classical to compositions based on blues, jazz, gospel and country. The result is a re-imagination of American music.

Originally from Northern California, Anderson dropped out of college at nineteen to walk across the US, eventually landing in Portland, where she currently lives. Classically trained, she honed her skills playing in country, jazz and circus bands. In 2011 she released her first solo guitar record, ‘The Golden Hour’ followed by ‘Mercury’ (2013) and ‘Into The Light’ (2016). She is in demand as a collaborator and composer, contributing to recent recordings by Beth Ditto, Sharon Van Etten and Circuit Des Yeux among others, as well as creating music for short films and soundtracks.

Onstage, she is a master storyteller, bringing warmth and wit to her virtuosic performance. We are delighted to welcoming this incredible guitarist to Belfast for the very first time.

“Anderson creates truly borderless music, fusing the diverse global traditions she favours without drawing too much attention to the act of juxtaposition.” – Pitchfork

“Marisa Anderson is a sickeningly skilled guitarist… Whether she is interpreting traditional and public domain songs or creating empathetic originals, getting sounds so solid and so spacious simultaneously is nothing short of a miracle. Her style is the embodiment of “American music” and she is one of the few instrumentalists that can tell a story and retell a history.” – Tiny Mix Tapes

“There are some musicians whose skillful playing seems to come so easily, it can appear supernatural. Guitarist Marisa Anderson is one such sorcerer of song.” – NPR
