This week on the Burnside Music Series stage we are excited to present Providence singer-songwriter Sianna Plavin.
Sianna boasts a CV that includes a stint with the Baltimore Rock Opera Society where she performed as four different characters in their first production. She was the front woman in a the folk duo Backyard Betties and also was a member of the chamber folk ensemble Soft Cat. Her solo project has a sound that is as warm as it is haunting. Go On Now, her debut album, was made from hours of tapes she recorded during time she spent as a farmer. The songs were originally written in a trailer where she lived in the woods, Baltimore rooms that she stayed in, and eventually her home in Providence.
Lulling audiences into her enclave, Plavin has quickly become one of Rhode Island’s most coveted jewels. This week will be an entrancing performance not to be missed.
Check out some of Sianna’s music to get a taste of what you’ll hear on Thursday.
Join us before the show for a very special event with StoryCorps and Rhode Island Public Radio. The StoryCorps Listening Party will present excerpts from conversations recorded in the StoryCorps MobileBooth studio during their residency in Kennedy Plaza this summer. In addition, you’ll hear from staff from Rhode Island Public Radio and StoryCorps.
