Singer-songwriter to perform Friday in Port Townsend

PORT TOWNSEND — Rainshadow Recording will host Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Abby Posner at 7:30 p.m. Friday at The Palindrome at Eaglemount Cidery.

Tickets are $20 each from or at the door of The Palindrome, 1893 S. Jacob Miller Road in Port Townsend. Proof of vaccination is required for entry.

Posner has been a working musician in Los Angeles for the past 16 years. She is best known for her ability to play nearly any instrument that she can get her hands on, twisting genres and pushing the boundaries of folk, roots and pop music, making her “Genre Fluid,” according to a press release.

This CalArts music graduate has composed music for commercials/TV, films and radio shows all over the globe (including Old Fashioned, The Fosters, This American Life, The Art of More and Last Tango in Halifax, just to name a few).

She also has music placed in commercials and TV shows all over China, Sweden, The UK and Australia.

Posner appeared in two episodes of GLEE on season four, playing banjo and guitar, and the Freeform show Famous In Love, playing banjo. In 2015, Posner performed live on KCAL 9 news and Good Day LA, playing original songs.

Posner scored four films: “Across Land Across Sea,” “Through Their Eyes,” award-winning short “Animation Elizabeth Sees” and “Lady Buds” while playing and touring with her indie folk band Abby and The Myth.

In 2019, Posner played banjo and sang “Wagon Wheel” as a featured principal role in Bank Of America’s ad campaign for the Ken Burns PBS Country Music Documentary.

In 2020, Posner won the Carl Gage “Give me Shelter in Place” Songwriting Award through the Topanga Folk Festival for her original song “Blind Spots.” She received the runner-up for her song “Emergency Use Only” for the 18th annual International Acoustic Music Awards, and she landed an Official Showcase at Folk Alliance International.

The concert is sponsored by Strait Floors. Media sponsor is KPTZ Radio.
