The Early Mays
Emily Pinkerton, Ellen Gozion, and newest member, Rachel Eddy, share songs based in a love of American tradition, while also exploring their own creative voices. All three are celebrated solo artists who bring their rich, and carefully honed craft to The Early Mays. Emily weaves folk, classical and world music traditions together in her songwriting. She recently won a New Music USA award for the commission of a piece for old time banjo and chamber ensemble, “Rounder Songs,”released in November 2017 on New Amsterdam Records. Ellen is an accomplished ballad singer and visual artist who has taught at the Augusta Heritage Center, and was an American Music Abroad finalist with the US State Department. Rachel is a prolific old-time fiddler and multi-instrumentalist, with a long touring history, who has shared the stage with Tim O’Brien, Uncle Early, Bruce Molsky and others.
There is an unsurpassed magic that springs from entwined and entrancing vocal harmonies. The Early Mays love the camaraderie of the studio, the road and rehearsals, and you can feel the gratitude radiate from whatever stage they are on. You’ll always leave a show carrying a little bit of that warmth away with you.
