The Memphis Dawls House Concert
We welcome the female trio The Memphis Dawls to Roots Hoot House Concerts on Saturday, November 7 for what to the best of our knowledge will be their first New England appearance. The Memphis Dawls is made up of Memphis music veterans with years of touring and musical experience. They play a haunting blend of lyrical and romantic folk. The band recently opened for Jack White when he played Memphis and was liked so much, he invited them to go on the rest of the tour with him. Doors will open at 7 pm and show time at 7:30. Don't miss out! Note that this is a BYOB-only show.
A little about The Memphis Dawls:
Holly Cole, Jana Misener & Krista Wroten began creating music together in high school. Although the surroundings were less than romantic, their sound was powerful even then. The three rejoined after roaming the country for college and other bands. The girls took some ques from artists like Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton and Linda Ronstadt. Folk and classic country provide a foundation while the heavy string laden R&B songs from Otis Redding to Minnie Riperton make up the walls and roof. Including Jonathan McLaren on vibraphone and drums and Nahshon Benford on trumpet and euphonium allowed the band to explore more territory. A typical show can take a listener from a warm morning in the arms of a lover to a cold night alone lost in a desert and, thankfully, back again.
They all take inspiration from outside influences: Cole with a degree in sculpture and Misener and Wroten involvement with several film soundtracks. The band continues to play across the country and their sound continues to grow bigger and more graceful than it's humble beginnings.
