Never before have traditional folk and electronic music come together as they do in Odetta Hartman's music. Hartman has a flexible voice that can stretch from low, jazzy tones to bright and angelic sighs. With a spectral mix ranging from acoustic banjos to electronic synth textures underneath, the music blends future folk with psychedelia, blues, country, pop, and more. She is celebrating the release of her second, full-length studio album, "Old Rockhounds Never Die."
Odetta Hartman will perform along with The Ballroom Thieves on Tuesday, December 11, 6 p.m. at The Arbor Loft, 17 Pitkin Street. $30. 454-9917 for The Arbor Loft. honestfolkpresents.com; odettahartman.com
