"'Sixty Strings' is not simply an exercise in musical tourism by any stretch, this music is assured and expertly performed, and while the duo wear their influences on their sleeve, the record sounds like something new entirely. This is a peaceful album that doesn't outstay its welcome or drag in the slightest over its running time, rather it engrosses and enthralls, and had me hanging from every nimble pick." -- Boomkat on Sparhawk/Carbonara's 'Sixty Strings' record.
So many talented people in one building! Folkadelphia presents a wonderfully diverse bill on Thursday, March 14th. The on-going collaboration between local string geniuses Jesse Sparhawk & Eric Carbonara will hit the stage debuting new work. Sondra Sun-Odeon (of "doom-world-psych" Silver Summit) released one of the most interesting and absorbing records of 2012 with her 'Aetherea. Bad Braids, Megan Biscieglia's project of music drenched in darkness, lightness, tenderness, and sorrow will soon be releasing new music too!
~JESSE SPARHAWK & ERIC CARBONARA: http://www.ericcarbonara.org/duet/pages/bio
Jesse Sparhawk (lever harp) and Eric Carbonara (22-string upright chaturangui guitar) perform acoustic long-form duet pieces deeply inspired by and rooted in a love of devotional music from various cultures. While both are accomplished instrumentalists who record and tour in support of their own solo endeavors, together here as a duo, they offer something greater than the sum of its parts.
~SONDRA SUN-ODEON: http://sondrasunodeon.com/
Sondra Sun-Odeon is a New York-based singer, composer, and multi-instrumentalist who is the voice and half the songwriting force behind doom-world-psych band Silver Summit...Sun-Odeon's solo songs travel further into the ether of her lyrics' darkly romantic world, full of heartbreaking longing and desire. Guitar loops meet clouds of delicate string arrangements and morph into fingerpicked arpeggiosethereal vocals morph into banshee-wailing abandon adjacent to detuned guitars. The sounds are at times reminiscent of Earth, Keiji Haino, while the mood and voice call to mind Grace Slick, Jason Molina, the lost doom of Nicoand yet exist in a unique tonal world of its own that's extremely difficult to pin down.
~BAD BRAIDS: https://www.facebook.com/BadBraids
Bad Braid's don't have no bio, but I can tell you that when I see them, I sit there and I listen, I am stunned. I can feel my heart thumping. Megan has an uncanny ability to write music that quickens the pulse and flushes the face. Goes well with whiskey.
