Wolf Larsen Opens Festival En El Barrio This Sunday

Posted By on Tue, Mar 19, 2013 at 1:31 PM

Continuing on with bringing you the bands of Festival en el Barrio, Wolf Larsen will be kicking it off this Sunday.

When you think of a music festival, you may think of an outdoor music event with lots of loud music, drinks, and dancing. Larsen, however, , transforms noisy venues into tranquil environments with her tender, soothing melodies, allowing her rhythmical lyrics to come to life.

Larsen is not only a musician; she is also a writer and a poet. Her debut album, Quiet at the Kitchen Door, was released on Dec. 6, 2011 with a much deeper cause then just to sell CDs.

For every CD sold, Larsen donates 15 percent to a Nike Foundation called The Girl Effect, and similar organizations that focus on developing the education of women around the world.

According to a biography about the singer on Air Play Direct, “Larsen doesn’t want to wait until the end of her career to speak up for what she believes in. And she doesn’t want to say she’ll give money when she has enough, when she is famous enough, when she herself is secure enough.”

Larsen will be performing from 1:05 to 1:35 p.m. on El Presidio Stage. For more information on the festival, visit their webpage here.
