Dead Winter Carpenters with Danny Barnes Barnyard Electronics
The Olympia Ballroom is proud to present a very exciting evening of string music:
On tour from Lake Tahoe, California is one of the country's hardest touring and most-fun-having string bands, Dead Winter Carpenters. Sharing the bill with his one-of-a-kind solo project is Danny Barnes, integrating his mastery of the banjo with electronics and looping in a truly unique way with Barnyard Electronics.
Unbelievable fun to ensue!!
In a time when music has been transformed and genre lines are left behind like the seasons, DEAD WINTER CARPENTERS are producing an ever-evolving style of music. The time spent, both in the studio in the woods and criss-crossing the American countryside, has provided Dead Winter Carpenters with a ground-breaking sound that blends Americana roots-rock with a tinge of straightforward 'tell-it-like-it-is' Alt. Country that is as hard-hitting as it is whimsical. While the roadsigns and towns pass by the windows on down the highway of tour, DWC are writing original material based on their life experiences. "Dirt Nap", the band's latest EP, is a musical journey which speaks magnitudes to these experiences.
Foot-stomping original tunes blended with the band's onstage presence highlighted by the vocal melodies and five part harmonies, ferocious fluidity of the fiddle, deep pounding thump and thud of the upright bass, country ramblings of the telecaster and acoustic guitars, and the driving drums all meld together to create an experience that is sure leave you wanting more
The five piece outfit is:
Jenni Charles -fiddler/vocalist
Dave Lockhart -upright bassist/vocalist
Jesse Dunn -rhythm guitarist/vocalist
Bryan Daines -lead guitarist/vocalist
Brian Huston -drummer/vocalist
DANNY BARNES is as humble as they come, and as talented as they come. He might be performing on a huge festival stage, or in the corner of a tiny bar - either way, the likes of Dave Matthews, Mike Gordon (Phish), Bill Frisell, Keller Williams, and Sam Bush all sing his praises. His 'Barnyard Electronics' project, which he features on this occasion, is something that separates him from the pack of virtuosic banjo players in the US.
