The Blackberry Bushes Stringband, a Northwest Alt-Folk Stringband, will perform at 7 p.m. on Nov. 3 at the library.
The Bushes’ innovative acoustic sound draws from the deep roots of American traditional music to create a rich patchwork that shares threads with artists like Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, Sean Hayes, and Crooked Still. Joyful singing and songwriting are supported by carefully constructed soundscapes that feature virtuosic fiddle. A longtime Northwest favorite, the band has developed into a national act, with recent tours across the US and Europe. Their live show is joyous and vibrant with an intention to move the audience in their hearts and out of their seats.
The Blackberry Bushes Stringband has performed at The Wintergrass Festival in Bellevue, Wash.; The Oregon Country Fair; Northwest Folklife; Swallow Hill Music Association; Yosemite’s Strawberry Music Festival; North Carolina’s Shakori Hills Festival; Berkley’s Freight and Salvage and hundreds of other venues across the United States and Europe.
