Gail Wade’s music is an evocative mélange of Americana, bluegrass and blues. A strong guitarist with a rich, soulful voice, Wade’s interpretations of the classics are fresh and her original songs beautifully crafted. For twenty years she has performed on stages in the U.S., Ireland, and Europe. She has toured as a member of The Hot Flashes, as a duo partner with blues guitarist Brooks Williams and as a side-musician with singer-songwriter Gary Ferguson. In recent years she has stepped to the forefront, recording Journey, her debut CD and her second release , October Moon in 2012. As well as performing solo, Gail currently tours with her own band “Turning Point” featuring some of CT’s finest acoustic musicians.
In addition to perfoming, Wade spends much of her time providing private quitar instruction to young people as well as adults. Fostering and developing an appreciation of traditional styles of music in young people is a passion she believes in very strongly.
