Melissa Ferrick - BUY TICKETS TO THE SHOW
Indie-folk queen Melissa Ferrick burst on the scene "amid the sudden surge of serious young women solo artists that gripped the record industry in the early '90s, Melissa Ferrick was hardly ignored, but her gripping and honest music was unjustly overlooked. Classically trained (she was a violin prodigy and later attended the Berklee School of Music on a trumpet scholarship), Ferrick took up guitar in college and got her big break in 1991, when she was invited to open for Morrissey at a Boston date. Although she was a total unknown outside the local club scene, Morrissey liked her so much he took Ferrick along for the rest of the tour, including a stop at New York's Madison Square Garden that had contract-toting label execs tripping over themselves to get backstage first." Ferrick hits the Knit stage in support of her new album The Other Side!
