Uncle Bonsai: One Night in Bellingham
"Uncle Bonsai are pitch-perfect in their delivery of often complex harmonic arrangements. These are nicely edgy, sour-sweet songs, written for grown-ups." - Michael Upchurch, The Seattle Times

Uncle Bonsai returns to the Fairhaven Library Auditorium, for one show only, to perform songs from the upcoming release "The Family Feast," their bedtime book for grownups, "The Monster in the Closet/Go To Sleep," along with songs from "The Grim Parade" and over 32 years of performing and recording.

Seattle super-harmonizers Uncle Bonsai are the Tim Burtons of folk music, dark and hilarious but with moments of great insight and beauty. Singers Patrice O'Neill, Arni Adler. and Andrew Ratshin, also the trio's guitarist and primary songwriter, present an often dizzying vocal relay of intricate harmony. The group aligns itself with the underachiever, the dejected, the outsider, the self-downtrodden, in densely-packed lyrics that fly by in a whirr at times and take a skewed stance on topics such as first-world problems, the creation of the universe, the afterlife, and holidays with family. A little like Stephen Sondheim linking arms with Tom Lehrer, with harmonies by the Beatles. Or Frank Zappa cross-bred with Peter, Paul and Mary..

The Fairhaven Library Auditorium is a wonderful, intimate, setting and the perfect place to hear the group perform. Tickets are limited so don't wait!
