Nashville-based, Amy Speace is a folk singer, timeless and classic, and a bit out of her own era. "She has one of the richest and loveliest voices in the genre and her songs are luxuriously smart," writes journalist Craig Havighurst (host of Nashville’s Music City Roots). "She’s profoundly personal yet also a bit mythic." Since her discovery in 2006 by folk-pop icon Judy Collins, who signed her to her own imprint Wildflower Records, Amy has been heralded as one of the leading voices of the new generation of American folk singers. Her song “The Weight of the World” was named as the #4 Best Folk Song of the last decade by NYC’s premiere AAA radio station, WFUV and was recorded by Judy Collins. From her beginnings in New York City as a classically trained actress with The National Shakespeare Company, to the coffeehouses of Greenwich Village where she began playing her original songs, to her move to East Nashville in 2009, to her most recent release, "That Kind Of Girl,: what ties all of her work together is a palpable empathy for the small struggles of the human condition. Rock critic Dave Marsh, long a fan, wrote taht "Amy Speace’s songs hang together like a short story collection, united by a common vantage point and common predicaments … it’s a gift to hear a heart so modest even when it’s wide open." She comes to Michigan with a brand-new release, "Me and the Ghost of Charlemagne."

This show is free at the door for Ark members at the Solo level and above.
