Female Folk Rock Tribute Show - performed by Melissa Cox

Friday 22nd January 2021

Friday 22 January 2021
The Boathouse, 326 Wakefield Quay, Nelson
Show at 8pm
Free (koha to artist appreciated)
All ages

Enjoy an evening of music from the 1990s female folk Renaissance, featuring the best of Sarah McLachlan, Jewel, the Cranberries, Alanis Morissette, and many more, performed by award-winning singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Melissa Cox.

From Sarah McLachlan's "Angel", to Shawn Colvin's country-crossover hit "Sunny Came Home," to the unforgettable guitar riff of Jewel's "You Were Meant For Me," Cox uses looping technology, a variety of instruments, and her haunting voice to re-create the defining songs of a generation. Melissa will also perform original songs from across her 11 albums.

Hailed as sounding like "a cross between Loreena McKennitt and Jefferson Airplane's Grace Slick" (Sing Out Magazine), the 37-year-old singer/songwriter latest release "Maiden. Mother. Broken.", a four-song EP that deals with issues unique to women and mothers, and is a nod to the artists that influence her most – chick power rockers like Tori Amos, Alanis Morissette, and Bjork.
