NEXT SHOW - Zoe Mulford

Zoe Mulford last appeared at Deer Creek back in January 2015 and I figured why have I waited so long to bring her back. That night we had the largest crowd to date.

So, lean forward. Zoe Mulford has something to tell you. The grandchild of two radio announcers, Zoe comes from a family where stories are as essential as breathing. She's an American songcrafter who backs her clear, luminous voice with guitar or banjo, conjuring a world within each tune. She is best known as the writer or "The President Sang Amazing Grace," an account of the 2015 racist attack at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston. The song was covered by Joan Baez in 2018 and by Kronos Quartet in 2019, won an International Folk Award for Song of the Year in 2018, and was transformed by artist Jeff Scher into a video and a picture book. During Covid lockdown, Zoe returned to her long-neglected first instrument to create a new EP, "Purple Piano." She now lives in the North of England and tours on both side of  the Atlantic.
