Carrie Rodriguez and Barnaby Bright with special guest, Tyler Childers at Eddie's Attic Thursday, March 5th, 2015 Doors at 6:30PM Music at 8:00PM Tickets- $14/Advance $18/Door http://www.eddiesattic.com/?event=carrie-rodriguez-barnaby-bright-special-guest-tyler-childers Information about the artists- Carrie Rodriguez- Pigeonhole Carrie Rodriguez at your peril. Sure, she has gained notoriety as an Americana singer-songwriter as highlighted by last year’s studio effort, “Give Me All You Got”, which reached no. 1 on the Americana Music Charts. But musical predictability isn’t in her world view or her performing reality. Rodriguez is equally renowned as a violinist, not only accompanying songwriting luminaries such as Lucinda Williams and John Prine, but also touring internationally with esteemed guitarist/composer Bill Frisell, who calls on her to play everything from surf rock to adventurous composed music to spontaneously improvisational jazz. A native of Austin, Texas, Rodriguez is often pegged as a country singer, yet she also sings in fluent Spanish, and is currently working on an album featuring classic Ranchera songs from the Mexican songbook. If you ask Carrie how she would identify herself musically, she would do so with one word: collaborator. Upon graduating from the Berklee College of Music, her earliest musical collaborations were done with legendary singer-songwriter, Chip Taylor, and resulted in four highly-acclaimed duet albums. After a fruitful era of touring, co-writing, and recording with Taylor, Carrie released her debut album, “Seven Angels on a Bicycle” in 2006. Since then she has spent most of her days performing throughout the US and abroad, recording albums with world class producers such as Lee Townsend, performing on numerous radio and television shows including Austin City Limits and The Tonight Show, and co-writing songs with many of her songwriting heroes such as Mary Gauthier and Gary Louris of the Jayhawks. Most recently Carrie has been perfecting the art of the duo with her musical partner, Luke Jacobs, an unexpected and stimulating match for her artistic leanings. Jacobs, a multi-instrumentalist/singer-songwriter who hails from the north woods of Minnesota adds a compelling Garrison Keillor-esque element to their live show – spinning tales that have both captivated and cracked-up audiences on both sides of the pond throughout their last three years of constant touring. His cool, understated delivery is a striking contrast to Carrie’s earnest passion, and their chemistry is undeniable. Their duo show has been described as “lushly cinematic” by The Washington Post who also noted that “…the pair made a virtue of necessity.” The London Times said, “both performers engaged the audience with their personalities as well as their music . . . as they progressed on a richly rewarding journey.” In January of 2014, Rodriguez and Jacobs released Live at the Cactus – a testament to the intimacy, playfulness and depth of emotion that audiences have been celebrating since the duo began their collaboration. They will be hitting the road in early October of 2014 starting in the Northeast of the US and continuing on to the UK, Ireland, and Italy and are currently finishing up the recording of Jacobs’ debut album, which is being produced by Carrie and will be released in early 2015. Barnaby Bright- Since the release of their first album, ‘Wake the Hero’ in 2009, Barnaby Bright has garnered high accolades for their songwriting and sound. Grand prize winners of the NY Song Circle competition, Barnaby Bright’s music has also been featured on national television to soundtrack heavy moments on shows such as ‘ER’ and ‘Days of our Lives.’ Their follow up EP ‘Gravity’ was named one of the top 100 records of the year by Amazon.com, keeping good company with the likes of Adele and Bon Iver. They continue touring in support of their most recent full length record, “The Longest Day,” gracing such notable venues as Lincoln Center and NPR’s “Mountain Stage” in West Virginia, and sharing stages with the likes of the Lumineers and Norah Jones. After moving to Nashville in spring of 2014, they began work on their most recent full-length album with producer Cason Cooley (Ingrid Michaelson, Sixpence None the Richer, Matt Kearney), which is set to release early 2015. Nathan and Rebecca Bliss, the voices and the brains behind Barnaby Bright, are truly the modern day traveling troubadours, averaging roughly 200 shows and 40,000 miles traveled a year. You can find them on streets as far away as London or Amsterdam, and as remote as St. Paris, Ohio, toting their massive haul of instruments…multiple guitars, harmonium, banjo, ukulele, floorboard bass, thumb pianos and keyboards. Because of the great number of shows they’ve played in their world travels, as well as their unique instrumentation, powerful harmonies and thought-provoking, connective lyrics, this duo has mastered the original goal they set out to attain: to create a sacred, magical space for their audiences…a momentary escape from the outside world. Their songs deal with a diverse range of subjects as relatable as longing and love, and as dark as death and revenge. The resulting emotional journey Barnaby Bright takes you on during one of their shows is one you will never forget. Drawing inspiration from literature, human behavior, experiences shared with the fascinating people they’ve encountered on the road, as well as a hint of fantasy, Barnaby Bright is a classic vision of timeless indie folk rock in all its glory. Nothing about the journey of this married duo has been accidental or without purpose…even the band name itself holds a myriad of meaning for them. The phrase “Barnaby Bright” is a medieval term for the summer solstice. In 17th century England, the longest day of the year was celebrated with a large festival to honor St. Barnabus, and all joined together in merry recitation of the limerick, “Barnaby Bright, Barnaby Bright, the longest day, the shortest night.” Nathan and Becky were instantly drawn to the name not only for its historical context, but also because of the many metaphors it represented to them: light and dark, good and evil, and the idea that though this innate, dualistic struggle is present in all of us, on the longest day of the year, light prevails over dark…goodness wins. This dichotomy of the human condition is represented time and again not only in their songs, but in themselves. With over a decade between them, and drastically different childhoods and life experiences, Nathan and Becky find in each other so much of what the other is lacking, both musically and personally. They have discovered that their vastly different backgrounds give them each a unique approach to the world, and to songwriting. Perhaps that is why listeners find such depth and range of emotions in the songs of Barnaby Bright. Tyler Childers-
