Meridian Green's original Americana folk fusion moves down the back roads of country music to the earthy rhythms of hoedowns, Motown, Brazilian jazz and Celtic jigs. With a voice described as angelic, she takes her listener on a journey through a lively neighborhood where the deeply personal lives next door to the purely fictional and flirts with the downright political.
Daughter of folk music legend Bob Gibson, Meridian grew up in Greenwich Village, enchanted by the magic of live music and songs well sung. After coming to live on the Mendocino coast in Northern California, she first performed Romanian czardas, Portuguese fado, and Appalachian and ragtime tunes with the Gypsy Gulch International String Band, and later, bluegrass and country rock with former Byrds member, Gene Parsons. After more than 20 years of playing to enthusiastic audiences and garnering rave reviews, her expanding repertoire of original material has her on the road to new acclaim as a solo artist.
Meridian has one solo and two duet albums to her credit, as well as guest appearances on a variety of other recordings. Her work has been featured in the New York Times, BBC Radio, Vintage Guitar and Dirty Linen. She has performed at festivals everywhere - from the Healdsburg Guitar Festival in California, to the Owen Sound Festival in Canada, to d'Or L'Eglise in France. Her nightclub and coffeehouse appearances include Godfrey Daniel's in Pennsylvania, Freight & Salvage in Berkeley, California, The Bottom Line in New York City and The Greys in Brighton, UK. She has sung with Tom Paxton, Geoff Muldaur, Mary McCaslin and many others. In addition to her writing and performing, Meridian is the co-creator of Fender's popular guitar accessory, the Parsons/Green B-Bender.
In a world full of performing songwriters, Meridian's uniquely beautiful voice and wittily engaging world view are an irresistible invitation to audiences to keep coming back for more.
