Fringe Review: Urban Hermit

Rachel Nelson takes you on a cross-country trip through interpretive Lilith Fair-style story-telling. This intimate one-woman show, told through wasp-y vocals and multi-faceted instrumentals, lets you into Nelson’s journey from being a self-proclaimed pot-smoking, boozing “urban hermit” to finding a balance through music to deal with her social anxiety and finding confidence through street busking. Nelson’s seamless story-telling and – at times – crazed amazement – truly connects with her audience. This multi-sensory performance includes blues, jazz, folk, and whimsy as you learn what truly brings us all together, no matter the path.
