Tall Tales Music Festival curator Erin Rae

This year’s Tall Tales Music Festival lineup comes courtesy of one of 2018’s breakout stars – Erin Rae, a indie singer-songwriter from Nashville, TN, who has curated this year’s music after her recent record “Putting On Airs,” was recorded at the nearby former monastery, The Refuge and was lauded by NPR, Billboard Magazine and Paste amongst many others.

She says, “I am honoured to be involved in Tall Tales Festival and wanted to make sure the line up reflected the strong female-led pool of songwriting talent which is coming out of Nashville and other cities around the US – we still need to shine a light on some of the challenges facing the female songwriting community and festivals like this and Brandi Carlile’s event are definitely helping tip the balance back in the right direction.”

Here’s who she picked:
