Helen Avakian - opening Chuck Williams
“Like Joni Mitchell, Helen Avakian can turn lyrics inside out... Avakian writes music that remains gentle on the ears while pulling aggressively on the heart... Helen Avakian’s music touches a place within.” Poughkeepsie Journal
“A charming and engaging real artist, Avakian makes some really meaty listening that is as far from disposable pop as you can get.” Midwest Record
Helen Avakian performs an exciting array of original songs and acoustic guitar instrumentals. Her stage presence is alternately enchanting and down to earth as she takes her listeners on a musical journey from the US to China, Brazil, Ireland and other parts of the world. She is joined by her partner in music and life, guitarist/vocalist/percussionist, Dave Irwin.
