She will join folk-duo Ordinary Elephant during KPR's Trail Mix concert on May 4 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets to that event are available here.

During her time in the studio, Zimmerman shared with listeners several of her own tracks, allowing for a taste of what she'll have to offer at the concert. She has produced eight albums since 2013, including the latest two produced in 2021, The Canvas Before Us and Shed a Little Light - Live.

Born on Shakespeare's 400th birthday, Zimmerman equates that to her love and natural ability for writing. Alongside her singing and songwriting, Zimmerman is a talented guitarist and fiddler, and performs on both instruments independently and while touring with a variety of other musicians. She is the recipient of several awards, including a top album award for The Canvas Before Us from the Folk Alliance International Folk Chart in 2021, and is a ten time winner of the Walnut Valley Festival NewSong Songwriting Contest.
