Aimsel on 207: Tuesday, Nov. 7 LIVE
SHOW # 1
Friday, November 10th at Port City Music Hall
Carbon Leaf’s debut album came out in 1995, and a dozen have followed. Here’s a chance to see the Richmond, Virgina, act known for a signature fusion of alt-country, indie rock and Celtic music. They’ve got a fresh batch of songs to share during their show, and you’ll hear acoustic and electric guitars, mandolin, fiddle, bass, drums, cello, banjo, pennywhistle, pedal steel, accordion and a whole mess of harmonies from the band’s four members.
Here's one of their most well known songs “Life Less Ordinary”
SHOW # 2
Alasdair Fraser and Natalie Haas
Friday, Nov. 10th at Stone Mountain Arts Center in Brownfield
AND Sunday, Nov. 12 at Chocolate Church in Bath
The musical partnership between consummate performer Alasdair Fraser, "the Michael Jordan of Scottish fiddling", and brilliant Californian cellist Natalie Haas spans the full spectrum between intimate chamber music and ecstatic dance energy. Over the last 18 years of creating a buzz at festivals and concert halls across the world, they have truly set the standard for fiddle and cello in traditional music. They continue to thrill audiences internationally with their virtuosic playing, their near-telepathic understanding and the joyful spontaneity and sheer physical presence of their music. New album is called “Ports of Call”
Here's a clip of them performing:
The Lone Bellow with The Wild Reeds
Tuesday, Nov. 14th at State Theatre
Indie-folk act The Lone Bellow is on the road in support of its new album “Walk Into A Storm,” and the tour makes a Tuesday night stop in Portland. This band’s 2012 self-titled album and 2015’s “Then Came the Morning” are both critically acclaimed, and this is the third. Be sure to arrive on time so as not to miss the opening act, another outstanding indie-folk group, The Wild Reeds. They’re a California quintet fronted by Kinsey Lee, Sharon Silva and Mackenzie Howe, who trade off lead vocal duties and all play acoustic and electric instruments.
