Maura O’Connell 

When: Sat., Feb. 23, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $18-26

Using her singing as her chisel, Irish-born and Tennessee-based Maura O'Connell has carved a career for herself unlike that of few others. Though she still relays the folk songs of her homeland, O'Connell is an acolyte of country music and bluegrass who not only takes on the tunes of American heartbreak and hope but also backs her full, soulful singing with arrangements that nestle up to modern country. That said, her 2009 album Naked with Friends found her leaving the band behind for a set of stunning a cappella duets with pals such as Dolly Parton and Alison Krauss. Her voice is an age-old emerald, capable of glimmering alone and in a vivid, contemporary setting, too. —Grayson Currin
