Alice Osborn: The Carolina pop-folkie who never went home

Alice Osborn | Scott Thompson

Alice Osborn left her home in Raleigh, N.C., to visit Lake Tahoe for the summer. She never left. An accomplished songwriter and poet, Osborn sings of love, loss and evolving identity in a contemporary vibe reminiscent of Natalie Merchant and Lisa Loeb.

With Chicago native John Kedzie on keyboards, Alice & The Wonderlandz perform at Made in Tahoe Festival on May 25 at 11 a.m. in Olympic Valley.

They also play a historical set from the perspective of the long-unseen Donner Party women at Legacy Day on June 10 at Donner Memorial State Park in Truckee at 10 a.m. with support from local folk-rockers Touch of Gold. | aliceosborn.com
