Laura Blackley on The Deck
Laura Blackley is a singer, songwriter, and purveyor of high lonesome Appalachian blues and soul. She was an on-air host and producer for seven years at WNCW 88.7 FM in Spindale, NC, spotlighting regional music, women in roots music, bluegrass and old-time. She has played in many bands, traveled many back roads and interstates, and enjoys digging up old tunes and hearing the stories behind them. She believes that music has a healing power and is a communal act, and she’s excited to come back and perform in the wild New Mexico desert.
