The event creator says
The Daphnes, modern chamber pop trio led by harpist Monica Schley, is teaming up two solo female acts: indie pop band leader Ivory Smith; and Queen Smooquan’s half-sister, Goatgirl.

8:00 - Ivory Smith
9:00 - The Daphnes
10:00 - Goatgirl

The Daphnes play modern chamber pop compositions featuring Monica Schley (harp and voice), Nate Omdal (bass) and Julie Baldridge (violin). This unconventional trio draws sounds from neo-folkster M. Ward, 90’s alternative bands Mazzy Star and Cowboy Junkies, and jazz musicians Pharaoh Sanders and Alice Coltrane.

Ivory Smith is a songwriter/composer showcasing the powerful contemporary capabilities and possibilities of the vocal instrument. Her honest and haunted songwriting style encompasses and enchants. Ivory is delighted to be working as a solo artist after many years of ensemble work, with pop/rock bands Bloodbunny, as band leader of Ivory in Ice World and as part of the acclaimed performance-art ensembles Foot in Mouth and Lingo Dance Theater.

Goatgirl is the 21st century story-ballads of performance artist/comedian, vocalist, musician and songwriter Jeppa K Hall. Goatgirl’s skillful storytelling and unique melodic sensibilities merge with her oddly angelic vocal style and dainty parlor guitar to deliver an unusually beautiful, yet raw and unadulterated hybridization of modern folk and blues.
