Jade Bird
@The Heights Theatre

Friday 5/21/2021 8:45 PM

Jade Bird makes her way to the Houston Heights at The Heights Theatre this Friday evening. The twenty something English singer/writer will be joined by Lucky Kilmartin.

Bird was introduced to folk music by a family friend; this included Neil Young, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell. She took up guitar herself at this point, a time that also coincided with the separation of her parents. "I needed a vent, so I think that’s ultimately why I got into music so heavily, because of these transitions, so to speak", Bird says. Also while learning to play guitar as a teenager, she was drawn towards Dolly Parton and The Civil Wars.
