Macon County singer/songwriter Angela-Faye Martin will perform at the Jackson County Public Library Complex in downtown Sylva on Tuesday, Dec. 6, at 7 p.m. in the Community Room.

Martin calls her haunting songs “mountain folk-rock.” Her latest album is entitled “Pictures from Home” and came out in 2009. It was produced by the late Mark Linkous a.k.a, Sparklehorse (a collaborator of Dangermouse, David Lynch, and Daniel Johnston) and was his last album before his untimely death. Martin derives her inspiration from the Western North Carolina mountains, where she lives with her poet and conservationist husband, Brent Martin.
