MARIAN MCLAUGHLIN – Album Release Show!
Wednesday November 28th 7-10pm
Marian McLaughlin is a multi-instrumental singer-songwriter pushing the boundaries of folk music. Weaving together imaginative lyrics, intricate guitar work, and rhapsodic delivery, she creates songs of exquisite detail. She released her third album Lake Accotink on October 19th through Antidote Records.
Lake Accotink is an environmental song cycle about humanity’s multifaceted relationship with nature. Overwhelmed by ongoing ecological issues, Marian began working on Lake Accotink as a way to to process the effects of progress. Throughout this lyrical journey, she observes humankind’s gradual impact on the environment, acknowledges the ebb and flow of natural cycles, celebrates existence of all life forms, and meditates on impermanence. Even when facing challenging concepts such as land fragmentation, plastic buildup in our oceans, and climate change, she makes sure to continuously set positive intentions for a hopeful future.
Viola and Bouzouki / Guitar instrumental drone duo. Made up of Philadelphia born musician Myles Donovan (Disemballerina, A Stick And A Stone, Ominous Cloud Ensemble) and New Jersey transplant Eric Bandel (Nymph, Victory and Good Hunting), the two piece group crossbreeds amplified walls of both harmony and dissonance with found echoing subway tunnel noises, bells and simultaneous foot drum driven percussion. Together, they live soundtrack film footage of long demolished locations in an relentlessly morphing city.
