Of Heather Maloney’s vocal prowess, New York Times music columnist Val Haller wrote, “If I’d closed my eyes, it could have been Joni Mitchell.” Just how does one live up to such an endorsement? In Maloney’s case, effortlessly. The singer-songwriter and guitarist is blessed with a soaring voice perfectly suited for what she describes as “adventurous folk.” Paired with her songwriting abilities, she has a one-two creative punch that makes for arresting live performances. Her recently released EP, Woodstock, also features indie-folk quartet Darlingside. The captivating performer treats listeners to an intimate show in celebration of Ripton Community Coffee House’s 19th anniversary.
