Awna Teixeira

Join us for a singularly Teixeiran gumbo of old time mountain music and accordion-driven, old-world folk at Santa Fe’s best intimate venue. Teixeira, best known for her work with Po’ Girl, has just released a solo EP and is hitting the road with multi-instrumentalist (you’d have to be, touring with Awna) Jay Speed backing her on tasty electric guitar, banjo and harmonies. Awna is playing first on a co-bill with singer-songwriter Dan Bern.

After cutting her teeth in various Canadian outfits, Teixeira hooked up with Po’ Girl, one of Vancouver’s most promising roots bands. They began touring internationally, with Teixeira initially on electric and gutbucket bass, then stretching out on guitar, banjo, ukulele, keys, accordion, glockenspiel, harmonica and percussion, in addition to songwriting, arranging and producing. After a decade and five albums with Po’ Girl, which is on break but still a going concern, Teixeira has been stretching herself musically, touring in support of her solo debut, Where The Darkness Goes, which boasts mixture of all her musical influences and varied instruments.

Presented in partnership with our good friends at Santa Fe Performance Exchange.
