Written in a year book-ended by the birth of her first child and time spent looking after her terminally-ill father, The Penny Collector is a collection of heartbreaking yet joyous songs.

Based in Austin, Texas, comparisons with Iris De Ment or Patty Griffin are commonplace, and those catching her live shows rarely leave unimpressed by the quality and sincerity of her compositions and singing.

As a featured vocalist with the Sam Baker Trio or a duo performer with her equally talented husband, Danny Schmidt (support for the tour) Carrie Elkin brings intimacy, style and smiles to her gigs.

She is compelling in every sense and on previous visits to the city she has proved an act worth seeing.

“I’m thinking Patty Griffin, Nanci Griffith and Iris De
Ment….spell-binding”  – Bob Harris, BBC Radio2
