Dana Falconberry w/ Paperbird & Skribe
Join us for a wonderful relaxing night of “down home folk music”. A great gift for that special mom on Mothers Day! We will have our music lounge set up for an intimate evening of music and dining. It will be a perfect setting for that special couple.
Dana Falconberry suffuses the majesty of nature in the orchestral pop-folk she elegantly crafts in Leelanau, her inaugural release for Oakland’ Antenna Farm Records. Citing influences ranging from the prints of artist Gwen Frostic, the books of Willa Cather, and the stark, childs-eye beauty of the Swedish film Let The Right One In, Falconberry finds lyrical inspiration in her idyllic childhood retreats to the Great Lakes State’s Leelanau peninsula. The result is a set of eloquent verse reflecting upon the region to which she has returned almost every summer since she was born.
Being born and raised in Michigan, Dana moved to Austin, TX several years ago. She is thriving musically in her new hometown, heralded by the Austin Chronicle as one of the city’s “most arresting female vocalists” and in 2011 she starred in the critically-lauded documentary on the Austin music scene, Echotone, a New York Times Critics’ Pick. In addition to her solo work, Dana has worked extensively with her contemporaries, frequently collaborating with Matt Bauer (Brooklyn) and most recently providing backing vocals for the Heartless Bastards (Austin) for some of their 2012 tour dates. She has shared stages with Okkervil River, Shearwater, Megafaun, Father John Misty and Dr. Dog, captivating audiences with her powerful live shows. In addition to extensive tours through the US, Europe, and Japan, Dana has recorded two Daytotter sessions and a Laundromatinee session for My Old Kentucky Blog.
Since the band’s formation over 5 years ago, Paper Bird has been playing its joyful blend of folk, roots, and Americana to delighted audiences across the country. Their unique sound is a combination of a dynamic and energetic rhythm section intertwined with effortless and ﬂowing harmonies. The group’s backbone is their songwriting, musicianship and general allergy to all limitations and trends. With seven members and no leader, the possibilities are ever unfolding, with ﬂuctuations in style and mood akin to weather patterns. A household name across their native Colorado, Paper Bird continues to tour and develop its voice and presence across the country. With three full length albums and several national tours under their belt, Paper Bird has steadily grown in both their success and sound while continuing to expand and explore what the band can do musically.
A garage folk band out of Annapolis, MD that harvests real music from the soul. Skribe’s powerful vocals & gritty guitar riffs fit together as naturally as the good ol’ missionary position.
A raffle just for mom’s will be held throughout the night, with prizes that include: A seat in the special “mom” chair on stage to be serenaded by the band, T-shirts and other band merchandise, some free drinks, And the GRAND PRIZE of a $50 Gift Certificate to Metropolitan.
