About This Event:
When Del Rey takes the stage, you'll see her sporting her trademark horn-rimmed glasses and prairie get-up. "The first time I saw her she reminded me of my grandma with a print dress and her hair in a bun," said SFMS member Bill Gulvin. "But when she got out her steel guitar, she set it on fire!"

"A very nice unlikely blend of things, accessible, slightly nostalgic, but fresh and thoughtful." — CDBaby review
Del Rey is an American blues, jazz and ragtime singer, guitarist and ukulele player. Her distinctive fingerstyle playing has an fascinating complexity, and she makes her solo instrument (even the ukulele!) sound like a whole band. Rags, blues and tunes of the early 20th Century are her specialty, even as she writes new music to add to the tradition.
She has taught and played all over the world, and has toured with Steve James, Suzy Thompson and Adam Franklin. She writes about music for various publications, including Acoustic Guitar Magazine, and is a popular instructor at numerous guitar camps such as Ashokan and the Swannanoa Gathering.
