It's been eight years since Erin Lunsford, of Richmond-based Erin & the Wildfire, released a solo album. She's been standing toe to toe, more than holding her own, while sharing stages with artists such as Keller Williams and The Infamous Stringdusters. Her Tiny Desk contest entries have caught the attention of NPR for two years running. This April, 5 Points Music Sanctuary is excited to welcome this rising star and celebrate her newest endeavor, "The Damsel". Fellow singer/songwriter catherine the great will open the night.
