While touring, writing, and recording this spring in and around Florence, Italy, I was pleasantly surprised to find the above writeup in the Florentine newspaper, La Nazione! Here’s a rough translation:
Evans, Spirit of a Folk Singer
Ready to release her first EP, Marina Evans will be at the Pop Cafe in Piazza Santo Spirito tomorrow for a live performance. While her artistic career got its start at Columbia University in New York, the American singer-songwriter is influenced by the folk singer tradition of the 1960s and ’70s. Born in Gloucester (Massachusetts) and in love with Florence, Marina has come to bathe in the waters of the Arno… and to play together with Bernardo Baglioni.
