Brooklyn: BROTHER SUN with Special Guest HONOR FINNEGAN

April 30, 2016 at First Acoustics in Brooklyn.

tracking.php?code=f6HCIjdj0s8mG4qUyEd94p

National Touring Artists Greg Greenway, Pat Wictor, and Joe Jencks have made their mark as veteran touring singer-songwriters, but Brother Sun is no songwriter’s round. The trio’s harmonies, as much as their lyrics, tell what they are about: warm as a campfire, stirring as a gospel church, rousing as a call to arms. Fusing folk, Americana, blues, pop, jazz, rock, and a cappella singing, Brother Sun is an explosion of musical diversity and harmony, in the finest of male singing traditions.

Brother Sun has recently released its third CD, Weights & Wings, a collection that confirms the trio’s dedication to extending its musical and artistic boundaries. The songs on Weights & Wings represent the evolution the group and its members have undergone. Join us as we celebrate the release of their most emotionally immediate and musically diverse work yet,

Honor Finnegan’s songs are humorous, then heartbreaking, with melodies that soar. She has been making a splash in the Northeastern regional folk scene with her original songs and ukulele playing. She combines elements of musical theatre, comedy, traditional folk, and poetry.

Honor is also celebrating the release of a new CD, Roses and Victory, which has been gathering outstanding reviews. Honor will treat us to her new songs, as well as some of our favorites from her charming repertoire.

Doors at 7:30 – Music at 8:00 PM
$30 in advance/$35 at the door
Vegetarian/vegan-friendly dinner items will be availble modest prices, along with the usual snacks and beverages, at our concessions stand.

Brooklyn: Plant-Based Bushwick

May 21, 2016 at LightSpace Studios in Brooklyn.

Bushwick, get ready for some seriously delicious vegan food!

PlantBased Bushwick is a vegan food festival that will take place in Bushwick, Brooklyn on Saturday, May 21st from 10am-6pm.

This festival seeks to bring the community together to celebrate a healthy, active, fun, and compassionate lifestyle through veganism. We’re showing Bushwick that being vegan is not expensive and unattainable, but instead accessible, fun, and healthy! We are inviting many vendors who will be sampling and selling a variety of food, skincare, and clothing products. The event will feature live entertainment and much more fun!

PlantBased Bushwick is also a way to give back to the community:

– All proceeds from the event will be donated to Ecostation:NY, which is a local social and environmental justice organization that organizes urban agriculture projects to educate, inspire and empower.

– Obesity, heart disease and diabetes are the leading causes of death in the United States. According to a study published by www.nyc.gov, 28% of adults in Bushwick are obese (compared to 20% in Brooklyn) and 14% of adults in Bushwick have diabetes (compared to 9% in Brooklyn). Moreover, 95% of diabetes in Bushwick is Type 2, which is linked to obesity. The study also found that exercise habits of Bushwick residents are poorer than those of NYC residents. You can help to change this by inspiring people to choose a vegan lifestyle and showing them that vegan options can be accessible.

Westport: SARAH NEUFELD, The Ridge

August 04, 2016 at Soundwaves in Westport.

tracking.php?code=N0yrDeSVwhYJEHkIhTIXp3

Sarah Neufeld | Violin & Vocals w/ Stefan Schneider | Drums

Sarah Neufeld is a violinist and composer based in Montréal, Canada. Best known as a member of Arcade Fire, she is also a founding member of the acclaimed contemporary instrumental ensemble Bell Orchestre, and most recently as half of an exciting new duo with renowned saxophonist Colin Stetson.

Neufeld began developing pieces for solo violin in a formal sense in 2011, though she has made improvisation and solo composition part of her process and practice since first picking up the instrument at a young age. Neufeld counts Bela Bartok, Steve Reich, Iva Bittova and Arthur Russell among the formative influences for her solo work, in tandem with an ear for the textures and sensibilities of contemporary electro-acoustic, avant-folk and indie rock music.

Neufeld’s debut solo album Hero Brother, released August 20/2013 on Constellation Records, indeed channels all of the above, flowing through shifting atmospheres and oscillating between restrained, stately ambience, emotive études, and raw kinetic energy. Small touches of wordless vocalisation, harmonium and piano supplant the violin in a few places. The album was recorded in Berlin by pianist and producer Nils Frahm, with Neufeld’s performances captured in a number of locations with site-specific acoustics, including an abandoned geodesic dome.

On February 26, 2016 Sarah Neufeld released her second full length album, The Ridge, via Paper Bag Records and Kartel Music Group. It is a body of work that sees Neufeld moving away from Hero Brother’s classical minimalism and sepulchral ambience, and into the world of rhythmic pop minimalism. The new album employs more emphasis on vocalizations than Neufeld’s previous works; the interplay between Neufeld’s voice and violin has become strongly integrated and narrative. The album also features Arcade Fire’s Jeremy Gara on drums, adding greater layers to the compositions, creating an intense, dynamic atmosphere, and a captivating listen from start to finish.

In 2016, Neufeld will be touring extensively as a soloist in support of The Ridge. Praise for The Ridge.

“Primarily made up of longer, grandiose songs that follow the whimsical sound of Neufeld’s violin and calming voice, The Ridge balances a darker tone with a breathtaking feeling.” – Stereogum

“it is crafted with care and precision and will hopefully open the door for many to the world of instrumental, abstract orchestrated composition… strikingly gorgeous and textural ” – Under The Radar

Neufeld’s focused, restless recordings invite the listener to share in the intensity of her ritual as a performer, creating a necessary and refreshing air of intimacy.” – Pitchfork

“a gorgeous album from start to finish, and it’s impressive how captivating it is for something that’s often so minimal.” – Brooklyn Vegan
