Awna Teixiera

Canadian-Portuguese musician Awna Teixeira has a rich, soulful voice that recalls some of the greatest roots singers of the modern era — including Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, and Iris Dement — yet her vocal style is uniquely stunning. The multi-instrumentalist plays accordion, banjo, guitar, and ukulele. She was a member of the Canadian band Po’ Girl before going solo and releasing three albums, including Wild One in 2015, the same year she moved to Taos. Teixeira plays at Gig Performance Space (1808 Second St.) at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, July 5. Tickets are $22, gigsantafe.tickit.ca
