Geek Of The Week: Dar Stellabotta

Dar Stellabotta has proclaimed herself a one woman blues-rock band from Maryland. That’s pretty much the size of it. This music geek builds her own instruments and then performs with them in a no frills one woman show. I saw her perform in Pennsylvania this past August and it was a really raw and guttural performance, but it makes you smile. You’ll regularly see her strumming away on a guitar made from a cigar box or some other discarded object.

Stellabotta has a YouTube channel where she posts videos, and also maintains a website for her fans. She released her first full length album, Lo-Fi Rejection, earlier this year. Now, Dar can add GOTW to her resume.
