Ashley Davis Band Winter Solstice Virtual Show & Album Release

Ticketed Virtual Performance

When the Stars Went Out CD album cover Join Lawrence native Ashley Davis for the 10th-anniversary Winter Solstice performance and the release of her new album, When the Stars Went Out. In this internationally livestreamed concert, Ashley will perform alongside the renowned instrumentalists comprising The Ashley Davis Band—Dave Curley, Colin Farrell and Will MacMorran.

The musical passport of recording artist and songwriter Ashley Davis offers a rich display of colorful stamps from Ireland and Scotland, but also heavily draws from the influences of her birthplace, the Kansas plains, and the country music traditions borne of the Appalachian Mountains. An internationally recognized recording artist and songwriter, Ashley has collaborated with musical luminaries such as the Chieftains’ Paddy Moloney, fiddle player Eileen Ivers, harpist Cormac De Barra, the “First Lady of Celtic Music” Moya Brennan, Sara Watkins and John Doyle, among many others.

Ashley’s latest album, When the Stars Went Out, is her most challenging and creative yet. The first album Davis composed in partnership with her touring band (The Ashley Davis Band), it blends the skill and influences of Dave Curley, Colin Farrell, Will MacMorran and Duncan Wickel. While the album’s country-roots style documents an expanding American folk music tradition, the details in individual lyrics carve out a personal space of emotive expression: “If you’re from a roots background,” Davis explains, “you start to crave that space, the quiet and the purity of it.” When the Stars Went Out is an album of diverse personalities, linked cohesively by Davis’s poetic, powerful vocals. It is also a living, singing archive of the pandemic, of sharing creativity together while exploring those tender, pensive moments of isolation.

> NOTE: This virtual performance will be available to ticketholders for three days following the live premiere. If you are unable to watch during the live broadcast, you can enjoy the show at your convenience until Saturday, December 12 at midnight (Central Time).
