Po' Girl

When: Sun., Dec. 7, 8 p.m. and Sun., Nov. 22, 8 p.m. 2009

Trish Klein started Po' Girl as a side project when the Be Good Tanyas took time off so Frazey Ford could deliver her first baby. Klein enlisted multi-instrumentalist/singer Allison Russell for a sound that mixed folk, blues, trad jazz, and Americana, or maybe Canadiana, since the band hails from Vancouver. Their tunes were marked by inventive arrangements and the blissful harmonies of Klein and Russell. The band became a foursome with the addition of Diona Davies and Awna Teixeira, two more talented multi-instrumentalists and singers. Their recent album, Home to You, is full of plainspoken poetry and deep feeling, and songs dealing with the varied notions of home. In person, their sweet harmonies and low-key virtuosity spin a cozy, comforting web of song. Po' Girl plays Sunday, Dec. 7 at the Freight & Salvage (1111 Addison St., Berkeley). 8 p.m., $18.50, $19.50.
