Miriam Elhajli

Friday / June 27, 2014 / 12:30 p.m.

Boston Public Library

Her sound recalls Joan Baez and Buffy Sainte-Marie along with a touch of Delta Blues, so it's difficult to believe singer-songwriter Miriam Elhajli is only 19. Last summer Elhajli traveled alone to London, where she played at renowned venues including the Cambridge Folk Festival, Leigh On Sea Folk Festival, and The Troubadour Club.
