Concerts at the Cadillac — Elisa Welch, Pianist and Celtic Folk Singer

by Paul Hogarth on August 8, 2007

Join us this week on Friday, August 10th at the Cadillac Hotel, where our featured pianist will be Elisa Welch – a countercultural ethnomusician who specializes in Left Coast Neo-Celtic Polit Folk. A native of New England, Welch wrote her first piano composition at age four, penned a few peace-niky “guitar mass” ditties in the late sixties, and has a lifelong love of Irish traditional music. She is also a member of Code Pink, an anti-war organization in the Bay Area.

Welch has performed with a large assortment of musical ensembles, including the Andover Choral Society, Boston University Concert Choir, Four Shillings Short, Tipsy House, Ceol na Gael, Paul Chaffee, Sylvia Herold, Sue Draheim, and Voices Lesbian Choral Ensemble. She’s currently focusing on solo performance, getting those rabble-rousing songs into the ears of those who need them most. The Cadillac Hotel is located at 380 Eddy Street (@ Leavenworth.) Everyone is welcome to attend Friday’s performance at Noon.
