A double bill tonite features songstress Dayna Kurtz and power trio VickiKristinaBarcelona!
Dayna Kurtz is a New Orleans-based vocalist/songwriter who has built a formidable body of recordings, amassed an extensive file of rapturous critical raves, and earned an equally devoted audience of fans around the world. She’s achieved these distinctions on her own terms, building a remarkably loyal fan base one person at a time.
Armed with an uncanny ability to stun audiences into submission, the cinematic poetry of her songwriting is matched by the power of her voice, a rich, distinctly resonant instrument that’s capable of immense emotional depth.
VickiKristinaBarcelona is Rachelle Garniez, Amanda Homi and Terry Radigan, a power trio of seasoned music veterans dedicated to re-imagining the songs of Tom Waits via inventive three-part harmonies and a treasure trove of instruments including banjos, bottles, squeezebox, and zills. They create a world of sound at once powerful, playful and poignant.
Seasoned singers and songwriters, each a hybrid story-teller and multi-instrumentalist in her own right, join forces to salute the tragicomic lyrical genius of the Waits songbook. Picture the Triplets of Belleville disguised as Depression Era hobos riding the rails across America stopping to play dance parties and funerals along the road to nowhere.
Three distinct styles form a captivating original mix, greater than the sum of its' parts, never failing to amaze and delight audiences of all stripes. Collectively, they have worked with artists including Jack White, Jackson Browne, Jane Siberry, Patty Loveless, Dan Penn, Ray La Montaigne, Thomas Dolby, and Taylor Mac.
