Cynthia Brando returns to her musical roots performing from her new album, “The Treehouse Trio Sessions,” this weekend in Clarkston, Moscow and Lewiston.
After exploring a number of musical styles, the album brought Brando back to what she calls “her true sound,” folk music. Early musical influences included Gordon Lightfoot, Joni Mitchell and Neil Young and the album — her first full-length album since 2009 — features what attracted her to music in the first place, “the simplicity of guitar and voice,” she said.
Brando grew up in California, with Idaho becoming a second home when her family moved to Lewiston and Weippe after she turned 18. She lives in Los Angeles, where she works on a variety of music ventures, including running Music Emerging, a magazine and website which provides emotional resources for music industry professionals.
Brando will perform free concerts from:
– 7 to 9 p.m. Friday at Hogan’s Pub, 906 6th St., Clarkston
– 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the Moscow Farmers Market in Friendship Square
– 7 to 10 p.m. Saturday at Brock’s, 504 Main St., Lewiston
