Music in the Barn: Upcoming Artists
Worsell Manor welcomes Lizzy Ross and Omar Ruiz-Lopez of Violet Bell for their second annual Music in the Barn performance. Making the best possible use of the atmospheric, captivating vocals of Lizzy Ross, Durham folk duo Violet Bell puts an eerie, vaguely avant-garde twist on traditional roots music, suggesting the lovely but slightly askew early John Cale releases. Garnished with beauty but fraught with an underlying menace, tunes like “Dream the Wheel” under score the interplay between Ross and multi-instrumentalist Omar Ruiz-Lopez.
Worsell Manor welcomes back Jesse Harper for another Music in the Barn Performance. Jesse is founding member and lead singer of acoustic supergroups Old School Freight Train and Love Canon. He has played thousands of concerts in both North America and Europe and performed with many of his musical heroes including David Grisman, Madeleine Peyroux, k.d lang, Jason Mraz, Josh Ritter, Ricky Skaggs and many others.
Worsell Manor Music in the Barn is excited to welcome back Glenn Alexander and Shadowland, featuring members of the Asbury Jukes including the New York Horns. Shadowland evokes a sense of unreality – mysterious phantoms in an indeterminate place, shrouded in uncertainty. The music of Glenn Alexander and Shadowland evoke the soulful vibe of a historic honky tonk, while keeping you guessing what’s coming next. At its core, Shadowland is guitar driven, horn-laced, in-your-face, rockin’, soulful, blues-drenched music.
Worsell Manor Music in the Barn welcomes Petra Haden and Jesse Harris. Infrequently, pairings come together that make perfect sense. The meeting of two incredible musical minds can produce sound that stands distinctly apart from the work of peers, a magical culmination of the best aspects of both collaborators.
