Olenka and the Autumn Lovers come back to visit the area. Word on the street is their last performance here, earlier this year, was not one to be missed. Their MySpace describes them as, “a Polish waltz, a vodka glass, a melancholy playground, a night of carnivalesque revelry.”
Polish singer/songwriter Olenka Krakus mixes her Eastern European roots with North American folk and country tendencies in her compositions. Formed in 2008, the multi-instrument band includes the sounds of cello, violin, trumpet, accordion, mandolin and glockenspiel. Now that sounds fun.
Timber Timbre just released a third album. It’s self-titled and under the Arts and Crafts label. This indie label also signed notables including The Stills, Broken Social Scene, Jason Collett and Feist. If you follow the mantra of, “a friend of yours is a friend of mine” – and assuming you like one of those other four names – you’ll enjoy what he has to offer. And if none of the above sounds familiar, come and be adventurous.
Steve Fifield is gaining more and more deserved attention for his poignant lyrics and smooth voice. Singing and writing for years, Steve just finished recording his inaugural album. So you’ll have the glee of listening to him in your very own living room very soon. And at Sunday’s show, you’ll hear him perform for the first time with his band The Branch 12 Singers.
Again – free, fabulous and fun. Sunday, October 25th, 7-11pm. A frolic in the flourishing fall.
