After a sell out show in 2009, Nanci returns to the De La Warr Pavilion, performing tracks from her forthcoming album Intersection.
Winner of numerous Grammy Awards, the BBC Lifetime Acheivement Award and recipient of the Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award, Nanci Griffith has produced 20 studio albums and is one of the world's most beloved singer-songwriters. Rolling Stone magazine once described hers as a unique form of "folkabilly" music.
Talking about Intersection, Nanci describes how the album became a reflection of the crossroads encountered in her own life: "It's emotional for me, and it's personal, and it makes my heart pound, thinking I'm going to be totally exposed here"
“I thought I wrote them to get these things off my chest. But now I've taken them on the road, and every night when I sing, 'Hell no, I'm not alright,' and I see my audience come to their feet, I understand exactly why I wrote this.”
A renowned songwriter, Nanci also has a talent for unearthing the songs of others. On Intersection, her choices of outside material were as personally driven as her solo compositions. She possesses a powerful gift for inhabiting the songs she sings - communicating unspoken intimacy and heartache through her tender voice and lilting, delicate phrasing.
