Awna Teixeira has lived a life of music since age six, when she became infatuated with her garage sale organ and trumpet. After stints in Canadian outfits The Derby, Red Eyed Rounders and Barley Wik, she hooked up with Po' Girl, one of Vancouver's most promising roots bands, and hit it off in a big way. They started 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 the band, which is still a going concern, Teixeira is pursuing a solo project that’s been on hold for many years. Her debut, Where The Darkness Goes, boasts mixture of all her musical influences and varied instruments. Join Teixeira for a joyous evening of music that weaves a unique and seamless tapestry of old time mountain music with accordion-driven, old-world folk.
Big thanks to Rick & Gail Thaler for supporting Awna's appearance.
