Margaret Glaspy, Dean Fields opens

Margaret Glaspy's got one of those voices. Hear it once and you'll know it forever: bluesy and light, soulful and specific, Glaspy's voice steams up the space above her cool guitar notes.

Born in California and trained in Boston, Glaspy can now be found making music all over New York, packing rooms at the Rockwood, Pete's Candy Store, and Southpaw.
