About this event

Raised in small-town Vermont, the daughter of a school teacher and a house painter, Canty earned her degree in biology in the Berkshires and subsequently moved to New York City. She spent her days in the city working as an environmental sustainability consultant and her nights making music at Lower East Side music halls and bars. In 2009, she quit her job and set out to make music full time. In 2015, she packed up her 1939 Recording King guitar and drove to Nashville, TN, which she now calls home. 

Since the release of her critically-acclaimed Reckless Skyline in 2015, Canty has put thousands of miles on her songs, circling through the U.S. and Europe. She warmed up stages for Mary Chapin Carpenter, The Milk Carton Kids and Josh Ritter. She recorded with longtime collaborators Darlingside and Down Like Silver. She won the Troubadour songwriting competition at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, and her song, “Get Up,” was nominated for Song of the Year in the Folk Alliance International Music Awards. The San Francisco Chronicle writes: “The Vermont native with a casually devastating voice and unshakable poise is bound to be the next great Americana star … Canty is ready to be discovered.” Rolling Stone calls her “Dreamy and daring.” Canty’s latest studio record, Quiet Flame, is about resilience, perseverance, and finding satisfaction in the mess and the mundane.
