Friends, we are so excited to have MARTHA WAINWRIGHT returning to the Artesian stage on Sunday, October 22nd 2017. She'll be on tour with her latest Album, Goodnight City -- and it's definitely one to hear live. Martha was last here in 2012, and it was easily one of the best concerts we've ever had at the venue. That was a sold out show, so don't wait to buy your tickets....
We'll Open the Doors at 7PM and the Concert will get underway at 8PM. Tickets are $35 in Advance or $40 at the Door. The ethereal avant-folk music of Mappe Of will open the show.
‘Goodnight City’ is poised to be her best record yet. This album returns to the rawness of her first release and includes songs by Martha, as well as songs written by notable artists to highlight her incredible voice. These songs are written by her friends and other great songwriters such as Beth Orton, Glen Hansard, her brother Rufus Wainwright, Michael Ondaatje, and Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs.
‘Goodnight City’ was produced by Thomas Bartlett (Sufjan Stevens, Glen Hansard) and Brad Albetta (Angus and Julia Stone, Teddy Thompson) to create a poignant album that covers a dynamic spectrum in a fluid and cohesive manner. The album was recorded in Montreal, where Martha and her husband have resided for the last couple of years with their two children.
