About Diane Cluck:

“She is likely one of the most refined and elegant songwriters in all of neo-folkdom. A brilliant idiosyncratic guitarist, a witty and wise lyricist, an imaginative melody writer with a powerful voice; her dark and introspective tunes are utterly captivating. Watch her spellbind the room.” -Village Voice, NYC

“An unlikely mix of Aaron Neville, the Baka people, and Joni Mitchell, Cluck’s singing is unaffected yet unusual.” -NPR

$12 non-members / $9 for members & Southwest Philly neighbors (contact us for information about the SW neighbor discount)

 

BIO:

DIANE CLUCK is a singer-songwriter of intuitive folk music. She tours the US, UK and Europe, employing singing as a healing, textural experience in which audiences may wander, ponder, or simply be. Her vocal style has been noted for its clipped, glottal beauty, and described as “an unlikely mix of Aaron Neville, the Baka people, and Joni Mitchell…unaffected yet unusual”. (NPR)
She accompanies herself on various instruments including guitar, piano, harmonium, zither, and a copper pipe instrument she built by hand. Time Out New York cited her as a “brilliant idiosyncratic guitarist”.
Diane released her seventh album Boneset through Important Records, featuring cellist Isabel Castellvi and drummer Anders Griffen. The album and singles premiered through NPR’s First Listen, All Songs Considered and Tiny Desk Concert series.
Diane contributed to New York’s burgeoning Antifolk scene in the early 2000s. Since then, singer-songwriters Laura Marling, Florence Welch (of Florence And The Machine), and Sharon Van Etten have cited Diane’s work as influential.
Starting in 2017 Diane began bringing an original workshop “Singing as Self-Care & Embodied Expression” to cities across the US and UK. While at home in Virginia Diane teaches at The Front Porch, Charlottesville’s roots music school, and was songwriting instructor for UVA’s Young Writers Workshop in 2018.
