The concert is scheduled for 7 p.m. at the Harbor Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $10 and are available at the door or the Curry Coastal Pilot, 507 Chetco Ave. The theater is located at 97900 Shopping Center Ave.
Singer/songwriter Hill, along with musical partner and pedal steel guitar player Daste, will perform their brand of intimate Americana with an indie edge. The duo recently launched a tour to support their latest CD “The Black and Wretched Blue.”
The CD, according to Hill’s website, is filled with confessional songs of heartbreak, love and loss, and showcases her penchant for homey alt-folk and countrified sounds. Hill’s honeyed voice and confident delivery is often compared to artists such as She & Him, Whiskeytown, and Linda Ronstadt.
“Emma Hill is not afraid to sing. In fact, her voice’s countrified richness, delicate inflections and fear-no-range transitions make it easy to imagine that’s all she ever does, said music critic Amy McCullough of the Willamette Weekly.
In a recent cover story, The Anchorage Press called Daste “the David Rawlings to Emma Hill’s Gillian Welch.”
