Gaelynn Lea Tressler has donned the violin for 20-odd years as a student, teacher, performer and composer. She is trained in classical music, but more often takes the stage as an esoteric folk artist and ambient-sounding experimentalist. In November she released a mostly instrumental solo album, All the Roads that Lead Us Home, and in March it was announced she won NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest. This national video competition consisted of over 6,000 entrants, and her song “Someday We’ll Linger in the Sun” was voted top prize by the judges.
