Marian Call to play Petersburg Saturday

What do Alaska, science fiction, and Jane Austin have in common? They inspire some of the original songs from Juneau singer-songwriter Marian Call. She plays a concert in Petersburg tomorrow night. Call says she fell in love with Alaska after she moved here in 2003. She tours nationally and internationally. At times playful, at times more serious, some of Call’s lyrics pay tribute to her adopted state but they also transcend physical location to address more universal themes. Matt Lichtenstein spoke with Marian Call by phone after previewing her latest album “Something Fierce”:
