With a voice frequently compared to Joni Mitchell’s, Nancy Jephcote is gearing up for the release of a solo album this fall — but you can hear the Vineyard singer, songwriter and award-winning fiddler at a concert at 8 p.m. tonight, Friday, August 15, at Katharine Cornell Theatre in Vineyard Haven.

Well known for her work with the Flying Elbows fiddle band, songwriting has long been another side of this versatile performer’s offerings. Paul Thurlow and Brian Weiland will add instrumentals and vocal harmonies.

The new disc is entitled Garland of Rain and has been produced by Tom Prasada-Rao in Dallas, Tex., over the past year. Examples of Ms. Jephcote’s songwriting also can be heard on the Vineyard Sound albums, available online and at Simon Gallery in Vineyard Haven.

The theatre is located above the town hall at 51 Spring street in Vineyard Haven. Admission is $10 at the door.
