Dietrich Strauses songs are a mix of timeless melody, literate lyricism, and a virtuosic command of imagery. (The Artery, WBUR) His blend of midcentury modern pop and atomic-age folk has drawn comparisons to M. Ward and a young Paul Simon and has garnered him invitations to support folk luminaries such as Sarah Jarosz and Anais Mitchell, to indie pop acts like Darlingside and Lake Street Dive. Tonight Dietrich plays with a unique band featuring the rhythm section of drummer Billy Beard and bassist Jon Bistline - both of Session Americana plus the fiddle and harp duo of Jenna and Mairi.
Jenna, from Lakewood, NY, and Màiri, from the Isle of Skye, combine to make contemporary music rooted in the melodies of Scotland and Appalachia. Jenna Moynihan is widely regarded as one of the best of the best in the new generation of acoustic musicians. Versatile and inventive, her fiddling style draws strongly from the Scottish tradition, but is not bound by it. Màiri Chaimbeul is a Boston-based harp player and composer. Described by Folk Radio UK as "astonishing", she is known for her versatile sound, which combines a deep-rooted sense of Gaelic tradition with a distinctive improvising voice and honed classical technique.
Jocie Adams is a multi instrumentalist and singer songwriter best know for her work with her band Arc Iris and formerly with The Low Anthem. Jocie is a force of unbounded creative energy in both her sonic and visual presentation. Truly unique and absolutely spellbinding.
