The atmospheric and sprawling guitar stylings of Marisa Anderson have endeared her to a rising fan base, culminating in recent shows with the likes of Daniel Lanois and Thurston Moore. The Portland, OR native has crafted a timely space of her own through her enthralling instrumental guitarwork. Anderson has drawn inspiration from guitarists across the musical spectrum, both modern and classic, including Doc Watson, Dave Rawlings and Antonio Berbiesca.

Anderson opened up the final day of the Nelsonville Music Festival Gladden House Stage on a gorgeous Sunday morning. Her set was intimate, poetic, and stunningly flawless, captivating festival attendees with a mesmerizing set of songs from across her discography. Anderson talked with host Josh Antonuccio about her recent performances, as well as the inspiration behind her writing and new music set to be released this coming fall. Anderson opened up her set with “Bred in Roses,” followed by the haunting “Galax,” from 2013’s Mercury (Chaos Kitchen Music) closing with the electric, layered single “San Feliu.”
