Hi, this is Dinty. Passim had a cancellation, asked me to fill in, and I am psyched. If you go to see music in this town you probably know who I am and have maybe seen one of my bands. If you’ve seen one of my bands, you’ve probably heard some of my songs, and if you liked those songs you will really like this show because there will be a lot more of my songs. Isa and Sean Trischka will be my band, and at the moment I’m writing this Zachariah Hickman is on Josh Ritter’s tour bus somewhere in the southwest writing string arrangements for some of my songs that Annie Bartlett and Mina Kim will be playing on violin and cello. I am ppppsyched.

Hi, this is Isa (actually it’s still Dinty). I am a bad ass songwriter, singer, and player of instruments. Also, my favorite food is oatmeal, unicorns are definitely real and cry marmalade tears, and I’ve always wanted a pet monkey (hey, this is fun). I will play some of my songs before Dinty plays some of his songs. I am ppppstoked.

  • Singer/Songwriter

Isa Burke (pronounced like Lisa without the L) is a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist based in Boston, MA. She spends most of her time as one-third of the powerhouse indie-roots trio Lula Wiles, but she has also made a name for herself as a side musician, educator, writer, and occasional solo performer.

Her musical life has been a continuous process of finding new modes of expression, from studying Appalachian fiddle with Bruce Molsky to learning all of Lindsey Buckingham’s guitar parts for a Rumours tribute show to starting a group dedicated to writing a song every day for a month. In recent years her songwriting has moved to the forefront of her musical identity, and her songs contain a subtle power, blending the minimalism and grit of traditional folk and country with a modern indie sensibility and an eye for emotive detail. As an instrumentalist, she weaves textural, evocative lines and rhythms that support her assertive, soulful vocals. She is a collaborator at heart, drawing inspiration from the interlocking grooves of the fiddle and banjo or the alchemic harmony of a country duet.

In addition to her recording and touring with Lula Wiles, she has performed and recorded on fiddle, vocals, and acoustic and electric guitars with artists including Session Americana, Corporate Punk, Caitlin Canty, Stash Wyslouch, and many others.  Driven by a love of good songs above all else, Isa is “as versatile a musician as they come, and a true showwoman who commands the stage and the audience’s attention” (Red Line Roots).
