Emerson performs Saturday night at WideSpot in Stockholm

Elmwood native Vicky Emerson will perform 7 p.m. Saturday at WideSpot Performing Arts Center in Stockholm.

Emerson will be accompanied by producer and multi-instrumentalist Matt Patrick. Emerson has gained a well-earned reputation as a strong Americana artist whose trademark blending of folk and blues have earned her comparisons to Shawn Colvin, Lucinda Williams and Patty Griffin.

Her most recent release "Dust and Echoes" received praise from critics with reviews from "City Pages" such as "her songs thoughtfully reflect on love and loss...with graceful turns of phrase and affecting, country-tinged melodies that her lovely, hushed voice brushes with emotion." 

The WideSpot is located at N2030 Sprint Street and the second floor in Stockholm. For more information, visit
