Event organized by CSPS Hall

Based in Iowa City, Elizabeth Moen is an indie-rock singer and songwriter, “armed,” says Iowa Public Radio, “with a jaw-dropping singing voice, tasteful guitar playing, and songs that stay in your head for days.” She taught herself how to play guitar as a teenager, and it was the writing community of Iowa City that inspired her to write her own songs. Other inspirations include Alabama Shakes, Sharon Van Etten, Angel Olsen, Esmé Patterson and Lake Street Dive, along with such artists as Stevie Nicks, Joni Mitchell, and Bonnie Raitt. She spent last fall in Dublin, performing around the country, from Galway to Bray, and at many venues in Dublin including Ruby Sessions, Button Factory, Whelan’s and Liquor Rooms. Says The Culture Trip, “Elizabeth Moen is one of those rare artists whose voice, from the first moment you hear it, consumes your entire being, doing away with all previous thoughts and concerns, and leaving you short of breath.” Opening the show is Sister Wife, a relatively new, Rock Island-based duo making waves with their “funky, indie folk with a hint of pop.” Tickets available at www.legionarts.org or (319) 364-1580.
