The Kittery Art Association Music Series welcomes singer-songwriter Caroline Cotter to the stage on Thursday evening, May 31, for a musical celebration of her newest CD, Home on the River.
With a captivating soprano voice and award winning songwriting, Caroline’s travel inspired songs take listeners all over the world and into the depths of the human heart.
“I’ve got roots that go deep and grow deeper the more I leave my home,” Caroline Cotter sings in the title cut of the second full-length CD from this sweetly expressive Americana artist. Co-produced by Cotter and Jeff Oehler of Beehive Productions and recorded in scenic Saranac Lake, New York, as well as in Kansas City, MO, Home on the River emphasizes both the freedom of wanderlust and a sense of place. The album features nine original songs plus Cotter’s hauntingly lovely a cappella version of Woody Guthrie’s “My Peace.”
From poignant reflections about her parents and grandparents to the title cut, Cotter’s songs are delivered in a honeyed soprano that is tinged with raw emotion. Home on the River is the follow-up to Cotter’s acclaimed 2015 debut, “Dreaming as I Do,” which reached No. 5 on the Folk DJ chart. Since that time, Cotter has played over 200 shows per year in such prestigious venues as Boston’s Club Passim and the Alberta Rose Theater in Portland, Oregon, Florida’s 30A Songwriters Festival and New York’s legendary Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival. Along the way, she has shared stages with musicians Loudon Wainwright III, David Wilcox and Dan Bern, and was selected for the Emerging Artist Showcase at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival in New York.
Caroline Cotter grew up in Providence, Rhode Island, and attended college in Maine before setting off on what has become a global quest for adventure and education set to music, and she’s not slowing down anytime soon. Her stop at the KAA is part of a national tour this year in support of the release of Home on the River. She will also return to Europe where her fresh, organic sound has enchanted audiences in the Netherlands, France, Spain, Belgium, and Germany.
“The real thread [of ‘Home On The River’] is the peace with being on a journey and carrying my home with me, rather than finding comfort from home in the traditional sense.”
