Tonight (6:30-9): Julia Weldon // The Ephemeral String Band
Hi there! Tonight we have an early-show treat for you:
Julia Weldon is a wide-eyed lover of life and prolific, NYC based folk-pop musician, guitarist, and songwriter. In her deeply personal percussive guitar-driven songs she plays with urban & rural memes. Intensely felt lines - from sardonic to heartfelt - weave stories of loss, regret, debauchery, incest, love & desire.
The Ephemeral Stringband draws from several branches of traditional American music including Oldtime Stringband music, Early country and bluegrass and Shape Note sacred hymns. They combine skillful instrumental playing with close harmony singing, creating a sound that grounded in the past, while creating new material to add to the living tradition of American music.
