Lauren Sheehan set to play at Malta High School on Monday, March 19, in final NAN of the season.

Music lovers will have the opportunity to enjoy the Northeast Arts Network's Final performance for this season as Lauren Sheehan will be performing in the Malta High School Auditorium on Monday, March 19 at 7 p.m.

Sheehan, from Portland, Ore., recorded a new album which is a companion to a book about the women who kept Gibson's guitar shop strumming during World War II. She will play songs from her recording "The Light Still Burns" as well as salute the women in folk who shaped her music.

Roots Americana musician, Lauren Sheehan, launched her recording and performing career in 2002 and has been sailing on to critical acclaim, national, and international radio charts and 'encores' at festivals, concerts and venues across the country and in Canada ever since. Lauren clearly loves and inhabits the music she performs, shape-shifting through the moods of the familiar and the obscure, howling with the werewolf and weeping with the willow. Her gifted guitar work, stylistic breadth, and vocals are inspired by her study with elders, oral tradition, and scholarship. With all that tradition behind her, she re-creates the intimacy of a back porch, where singing and playing were regular events.

Lauren began playing guitar at 10, discovered traditional, social and dance music in her early 20's, then jumped into living acoustic blues up at Centrum's Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival in her 30's, picking up mandolin and banjo along the way.
