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.
