Saturday event added!
Songs function as tiny stories: told from the perspective of a fictional character, with feelings or events that often change from the beginning to the end of the song.


Emily Henry is a DC-area singer-songwriter who has been performing locally for over five years, playing her own personal brand of folk-influenced indie pop. Her unique picking style and strong lyrical background underlay the real showstopper: her powerful, sweet voice, which has been compared to the likes of Joni Mitchell, Patty Griffin, and Alison Krauss.
Two years in the making, Henry’s forthcoming EP “Matchsticks” will showcase that angelic strength while taking her music down a slightly darker, more mysterious road. The songs of “Matchsticks” unearth the complex emotions hidden inside stories both fictional and true, the spoken and the unspoken in the little moments and in the big, transformational turning points – all done with a light touch and a razor-sharp pop sensibility.¬†Henry is currently planning an East Coast tour, to be announced soon.
Hear Emily sing her song, “Strong” here.
