Three amazing singer/songwriters on one stage!
Sean McArdle : http://seanmcardle.com/
Hailing from Oakland CA, Washington DC transplant and punk refugee Sean McArdle sings sparse whiskey-addled ballads celebrating love, loss, and the virtues of insomnia. Sean's music has been described by the Washington Post Express as gentle, queer and quirky, but the content of his lyrics suggest a darker sensibility.
Marissa Nadler : http://marissanadler.com
Winter is heading our way but upon hearing Marissa Nadler's debut 'Ballads Of Living And Dying' LP we're positive cold hands won't be an issue this year. Her songs are dipped in a melancholic sauce of ethereal elements. Her songwriting mostly deals with tragic deaths - forbidden fates and stormy suicides where nostalgia and melodrama dance hand in hand around the trees. Beautifull fingerpicking acoustic guitar that blend perfectly with her smoky soprano voice. An ideal companion for long somber days. alone in the dark dreaming about the next sunrise. Eclipse made this haunting record available in a limited edition of only 500 copies. the light shines bright at the top of the folk hill!
Stella Schindler : http://www.stellaschindler.com
The citizens of DC-based folk singer Stella Schindler’s songs are
lonely, cursed, or searching for some new horizons. With her sweet, haunting voice—anchored in the roots of country blues—these characters move along ancient trails and dance halls to find their home in what the Washington Post describes as “bittersweet yet still uplifting territory.” She will sing you “sad songs that will make you smile.”
