VAIl — Join the Vail Public Library for a free concert with Rebecca Folsom on Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. Folsom’s music is about liberation. Her songs crack open hearts, inspire hope and leave listeners with a deeper perspective.

Folsom’s world-class voice traverses a near-four-octave range. KUNC radio describes it as “knock-you-to-your-knees.” The Daily Camera describes her music as “shining with lush harmonies” and Westword Magazine says “her songs hit like little earthquakes!” While her range is impressive, it’s the expression in her voice that rivets your attention and stays with you long after the show ends.

This year, with the February release of two new CDs, Folsom is in full stride, more masterful than ever and more personal too. Her newest CDs, “Extraordinary Days” and “Little Medicines,” born out of writing 52 new songs in a year, are a delightfully positive ensemble of songs.

Within a few weeks of its release, “Extraordinary Days” hit No. 5 on the national Folk DJ chart, while the song “Better Times” was named No. 1 Best Folk song.

Folsom finds great joy in sharing her artistic experience through performing, songwriting, painting and her Art of Vocal Freedom workshops. Her genius is in helping people to open their hearts, to leap into what they really love, and to shine.

“I want to help people, in whatever form I can, break down barriers, to help people free themselves to live more openly, authentically, and with confidence that their dreams are possible and truly valued,” she said.
