Caroline Cotter stops by for a show at Brandon Music

“I’ve got roots that go deep and grow deeper the more I leave my home,” sings Caroline Cotter in the title cut of the sparkling “Home on the River,” her second full-length major release. The sweetly expressive Americana artist, who has found a true home on the road and on diverse musical stages throughout the world, is on tour and will stop to play at Brandon Music on Saturday, Nov. 24.
Cotter grew up in Providence, R.I., and attended college in Maine before setting off on what has become a global quest for adventure and education set to music. “Home on the River” emphasizes both that freedom of wanderlust and a sense of place. The album features nine original songs plus Cotter’s hauntingly lovely a capella version of Woody Guthrie’s “My Peace.”
“Home on the River” is the follow-up to Cotter’s acclaimed 2015 debut, “Dreaming as I Do,” which reached No. 5 on the Folk DJ chart. Since then, Cotter has played over 200 shows per year in such prestigious venues as Boston’s Club Passim and the Alberta Rose Theater in Portland, Ore., Florida’s 30A Songwriters Festival and New York’s legendary Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival. Along the way, she has shared stages with musicians Loudon Wainwright III, David Wilcox and Dan Bern, and was selected for the Emerging Artist Showcase at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival in New York. Cotter was also a finalist for the 2018 No Depression Singer-Songwriter Award.
Saturday’s concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Concert tickets are $20. A pre-concert dinner costs and extra $25. Reservations are required for dinner and recommended for the show. Venue is BYOB.
