Chicago-based singer/songwriter Edie Carey is back on the Midcoast and will perform a solo sunset concert Saturday, Aug. 14 at 5:30 p.m. on the lawn of Fiddlehead, a private home at the end of Harts Neck Road.

Carey is known for an unmistakable honeyed voice and intelligent, heart-grabbing songs, but perhaps most especially for her warm, engaging presence on and off stage. As much a part of her show as the music itself, her wry and often self-mocking humor makes audiences feel as though they have just spent an evening with a very close friend.

Carey has been performing more than 180 shows a year at festivals, colleges and listening rooms in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom since 1999. Her soon-to-be-released seventh album, “Bring The Sea,” as well as her last two CDs, was funded entirely by her very loyal and steadily growing legion of fans.

Carey has shared stages with Shawn Mullins, Glen Phillips, Sandra Bernhard, Jonatha Brooke, Catie Curtis, Leo Kottke and Lucy Kaplansky and is a regular headliner at Boston’s legendary Passim Cultural Center, SPACE (Chicago), CSPS (Cedar Rapids), Tractor Tavern (Seattle), Hotel Cafe (Los Angeles) and The Living Room (New York City).
