Folkadelphia Session: Margaret Glaspy
Without a doubt, Margaret Glaspy is a name you’re gong to start to hear a lot of from now on. A new signing to the illustrious ATO Records, the world will feel the impact of Glaspy’s debut album this summer. She has spent recent years cutting her teeth touring with Rachel Yamagata, Aoife O’Donovan, Jayme Stone’s Lomax Project, and even Ricky Skaggs and Tim O’Brien. It would right on to say that her musical sensibilities fit snugly with any of these acts – however, there is something intrinsically different and unique about Glaspy. Let’s call it the “Glaspy Factor,” some extra energy, some “umph,” some kinda creative maelstrom that the artist and the listener get sucked up into. A taste of that can be heard on Glaspy’s EP, a lead-in to her full length.
Right now, we’re just living in the calm before the storm. Margaret Glaspy is a force of nature and she’s about to break onto your scene. In advance of some exciting months, Glaspy visited the WXPN Studio to share a handful of tracks, showcasing her captivating performing chops. Catch her on an extensive tour, likely coming through your town soon. Her debut album Emotions and Math comes out June 17th.
