Sally Anne Morgan ft. Ritka

February 22 @ 7:00 pm

Join us on Thursday, February 22, for an evening with multi-instrumentalist Sally Anne Morgan, featuring Ritka. Show at 7 p.m., doors at 6 p.m. $12 advance / $15 day of show.


Multi-instrumentalist Sally Anne Morgan’s rich, intimate and modern music is cultivated with the seeds sown by folk, contemporary music and psychedelia. Her work exists in conversation with the living tradition of reinterpreting folk practices, from her music to her letterpress artwork to her microbrewery Leveller Brewing Co. Alongside new interpretations of traditional songs, Morgan also composes her own pieces drawing on her a vast knowledge of folk forms, and experience with her work as part of The Black Twig Pickers and House and Land (with Sarah Louise). Her music is traditional in the sense that she continues the practice of folk songs’ rich history in social and emotional narratives yet remains completely unbound by traditional song structures and forms. Infused with her singular perspective, Morgan’s music is elevated by her deft musical skills and her remarkably expressive voice that together create wholly new folk forms, familiar in their instrumentation yet distinctly her own. Carrying tills the rich soil of Appalachian traditions and Sally’s rural North Carolina surroundings into warm, reflective songs about navigating challenges, as well as the most joyous and personal emotions surrounding Morgan’s own pregnancy and recent birth of her first child. “The process of creating this album was intimately connected to the process of conceiving and birthing and raising a child,” says Morgan.

RITKA is the music project of Rita Kovtun, a multidisciplinary artist based in Asheville, NC (unceded Cherokee land). Kovtun was born in Moscow, Russia, but moved to the U.S. at age 3 and grew up in Minnesota. These places and experiences inform Kovtun’s worldview and songwriting. Her songs revolve around our relationships with the human and more-than-human world, touching on themes of memory, connection, and belonging. Her music trends toward dreamy, trancey folk-pop, sometimes in English, sometimes in Russian. Read less
