Old Sloop presents: Annie Sumi with opener Megan Burtt
March 19 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Annie Sumi is a mixed-race, ethereal-folk artist from Canada. Her music is intimate and expansive, inviting the listener into a familiar otherworld. Inspired by the mirrored relationship between physical and emotional landscapes, Sumi’s music speaks of human experience through the language of the senses.
“In recent years, I have let myself lean into that space between things as a practice of listening, and it feels like I become an animal led by my ear, or my tongue, or my hands, toward a song.”
Since 2015, the Ontario-based songwriter has released three critically-acclaimed albums and toured her music across Canada, parts of the U.S. and Europe. Solastalgia is a reflection on the feeling of “homesickness” related to our environment, our relationships, and ourselves. Reflections and In the Unknown have been awarded with a number of nominations as ‘Emerging Artist’, ‘Female Vocalist’, and ‘Songwriter of the Year’, and received support from national and international radio.
Megan Burtt is an international touring singer/songwriter decorated with national recognition. Since her sophomore release “The Bargain”, Megan has performed at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater, been featured with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, toured Europe, across the US, and supported artists like Gregory Alan Isakov, Chris Isaak, Leann Rimes and Marc Cohn. She is the winner of the Kerrville NewFolk, Rocky Mountain Folk Festival and Westword Music Award and a finalist in Mountain NewSong, Songwriter Serenade and Great American Song Contest.
