Come on down to the folk school for a special concert and record release party with Rachael Kilgour!
“Kilgour’s unapologetic lyrics are a real treat.” – Rolling Stone
Rachael Kilgour is a Minnesota-born, Boston-based songwriter and performing artist whose sincere, lyric-driven work bravely walks the line between personal and political. The 2015 grand prize winner of the esteemed international NewSong Music Performance & Songwriting Competition and 2017 winner of the Kerrville New Folk Contest, Kilgour has been featured at NYC’s Lincoln Center, The Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. and by the ASCAP Music Cafe at the Sundance Film Festival.
In February 2019, Kilgour followed the success of her most recent full length album with the release of a new EP, Game Changer. The aptly titled work examines the artist’s tentative first steps into a new world, post-heartbreak. With a clear head, Kilgour touches on the complicated nature of romance and relationship, sets up a stunning defense of queer love, and reassesses her priorities as a citizen of a changing wider world.
