Storytelling singer to perform at Darlington

The Darlington Arts Center will welcome singer and songwriter Zoe Mulford on Saturday, Sept. 26, as part of its 2015-2016 Coffee House Concert Series.


Zoe Mulford will perform at the Darlington Arts Center on Saturday, Sept. 26.

The evening will begin with an open mic at 7:30 p.m. followed by  Mulford at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15 for general admission and $10 for members and include free coffee, tea, and desserts (BYOB, corkscrewd provided), said a Darlington press release.

Known for her powerful style of musical storytelling, Mulford has been described as a “brilliant, highly original songwriter who delivers her music with warmth and sincerity and a bit of twinkle” by Rich Warren, a critic for WFMT-FM in Chicago.

A set by Mulford is like a volume of short stories – evocative, beautifully crafted, and endlessly varied. Her style of performance leans heavily on vibrant storytelling, and she brings her listeners on a journey with each set. Backing her clear voice with guitar or claw-hammer banjo, she draws on the traditional music of the United States and the British Isles, the release said.

Mulford has four studio albums on Azalea City Recordings, an independent label based in Takoma Park, MD. Her second album, "Roadside Saints," was nominated for Song, Album, and Songwriter of the Year by the Washington (DC) Area Music Association. Additionally, her songs have been recognized by the Great American Song Contest and the Mid-Atlantic Song Contest and Mulford has appeared in Sing Out! magazine.

Advance purchase of tickets is recommended, either online at or by calling (610) 358-3632.
