Laura Marling, pixie songwriter and member of what the British press has dubbed the “nu-folk” movement, will tour Stateside this coming fall. Hitting up appropriately intimate venues, Marling begins her US trek September 27, visiting a pizzeria in Oregon, a library in California, and a museum in Massachusetts, among other sites, throughout her brief Working Holiday Tour.

The daughter of a music teacher who owned his own recording studio, Marling grew up surrounded by the folk music of her father’s generation. She also attended a religious Quaker school, with both circumstances arguably influencing her current work, which is characterized by a timeless (both “nu” and classic) lyricism and pathos.
