House Concert in Philadelphia, PA
We are super excited that Marian Call is returning to SixthSt (with accompanist extraordinaire, Scott Barkan). Wonderful show last time, even better show next time – that’s how it works!
Marian Call does things a little differently. Her trusty typewriter is always at her side, her songs are all about spaceships, avocados, and Windows Vista, and she makes her home in Alaska. A careful completionist, she played in all fifty United States in 2010, and tours the U.S., Canada, and Europe for most of her working year. Call’s music has been described by fans as “funky acoustic joy jazz” — her eclectic, humorous and heartfelt songs reach across all ages and demographics.
Call’s concerts are unlike any other, and she is most often compared to other artists noted for their uniqueness and whimsy — songwriters such as Joni Mitchell, Regina Spektor, Ingrid Michaelson, and Amanda Palmer. Marian Call releases music and tours under her own power without label support, and her crew of loyal fans has supported her through her years of intensive travel and recording.
