Alberta Spotlight: Lucette with Hermitess
August 26, 2018 @ 12:00 am MDT
The National Music Centre kicks off its fall season of Alberta Spotlight during Alberta Culture Days. First up is Lucette with opener Hermitess. Edmonton-bred alt-pop singer-songwriter Lucette has toured with country legends Joe Ely and Sturgill Simpson, roots-rocker Alejandro Escovedo, and many among Americana’s next wave of artists, including Mason Jennings and David Ramirez. With her debut release, Black is the Color, racking up over five million Spotify streams and counting, Lucette is indeed an artist on the rise and one to watch. Hermitess is the solo project of songwriter and harpist Jennifer Crighton (also of Devonian Gardens). Stripping back the performance to a harp and a circle of women’s voices, the Hermitess is an inquisitive, contrary, wounded, wise and ever dreaming incantation.
