Portrait of Beth DeSombre
Beth DeSombre (pronunciation: de-SOM-bree) sings new songs that spring from old traditions, telling the stories of people and places along life’s crooked highways. Sing Out! Magazine describes her songs as “smart and uplifting . . . focusing on the quiet meaning to be found in ordinary life.” Christine Lavin calls her songwriting “wonderful,” and the folk-pop duo The Kennedys laud her “catchy melodies and insightful lyrics.”



Beth's second CD, At Home In This Town, was released in January 2011, and debuted at #22 on the Folk-DJ charts for February 2011. Her debut CD, Crooked Highways, came out in December 2007; both were produced by Dave Chalfant and include backing musicians Tracy Grammer, Jim Henry, Pete and Maura Kennedy, among others. Beth's songwriting influences include Dave Carter and Richard Shindell.



Though she has played primarily in New England, she has begun touring in other parts of the country (and internationally) as well. Beth has opened for such folk luminaries as Tracy Grammer John McCutcheon, Rod MacDonald, Pete Morton, and the Nields, and played venues like Club Passim and Johnny D’s. Her songs have been honored in national and international songwriting contests, and she has made special guest appearances at major folk festivals (Boston, New Bedford Summerfest, Strawberry Park).
