Caitlin Canty’s intimate solo concert at the Arts Barn will feature many of the songs from her just-released record, Reckless Skyline, as well as original songs from previous records. Canty delivers her fine-edged songs with a 1930’s Recording King Guitar and a dusky alto cut with wild defiant sorrow.

Canty will also present a workshop geared to the needs and interests of those attending. She is prepared to discuss songwriting, performance, record production, and the business of being a full-time touring musician.
Canty describes Reckless Skyline, produced by acclaimed songwriter Jeffrey Foucault, as “twelve songs that veer nimbly between country ballads and straight-up rock, dark blues and sparsely arranged folk.” Her songs imbue commonplace moments with strange magic and convey a restless energy, clarity of purpose and a desire to live fully within elemental processes – moving light, running water and wildfire. Lead track “Get Up” sets the tone for Reckless Skyline, with a call to action to push on through the sentimental.
Raised in a small-town in Vermont, the daughter of a school teacher and a house painter, Caitlin Canty spent a decade in New York City cutting her teeth on both sides of the microphone – as a performer and as the first employee of the successful Artists Den series. A constant collaborator, Canty writes and performs with several bands and spends much of her year on the road, dividing her time between Nashville, Idaho and New England.
