Elaine and Jerome Rosenfeld Concerts in the Courtyard presents
Jolie Holland and Ollabelle
Wednesday, July 12, 2006
ï¿½â‚¬Å“Taking cues from vocal jazz, backwoods blues, and moaning Appalachia, Holland, a co-founder of the equally impressive Be Good Tanyas, has created an unconventional collection of compelling arrangements. Her log-cabin vocals are rife with graceful trills and float ghostlike through crooked melodies." Rolling Stone
Drawing both inspiration and materials from a deep well of rural American roots music including gospel, blues, bluegrass, and country Ollabelle reimagines these sounds for contemporary audiences, honoring the spirit and substance of the original sources while allowing this music to live and flourish in a post-modern era.
Members, seniors, students $20; general admission $25.
