Track #13 - "Free of Wanting (You)"
Teri Quinn (of Teri Quinn and Her Situation) (November)
A Northern girl with a Southern heart living in the Mid-West, Teri Quinn writes songs blending the sweet and the savory. With her clawhammer banjo playing and stylized picking, she mixes an old fashioned sound with a modern luster. Her lyrics and harmonic palette express emotions so honest it hurts. Teri’s musical path is unique. She studied clarinet performance and music composition at the University of Missouri- Kansas City Conservatory of Music. Soon after she graduated and wondering what was next, she felt the banjo wooing her through a Willie Watson performance on A Prairie Home Companion. She woke up one crisp December morning in 2013 and decided it was time to let the banjo take her along a new path. You may find her wielding her wild banjo by herself or with her rowdy band -Teri Quinn and Her Situation.
