Monday Jun 30th @ 8pm Phoebe Hunt & Connor Forsyth w/ Fort Defiance
Phoebe Hunt & Connor Forsyth w/ Fort Defiance Indie::Folk::Pop
Known for her work in the Belleville Outfit and tours with Lexingtonian Ben Sollee, Pheobe Hunt is a beautiful presence in contemporary Americana music. Intimate and connected, listening to this songstress is akin to flipping through the New American Songbook. From heart wrenching to playful, the quality that shines through most of all in Phoebe's music is honesty. Her insatiable wanderlust combined with her love of the violin drives everything she does as she continues to explore the roots of American music, songwriting and travel.

Fort Defiance is an indie-folk trio headed by Jordan Eastman, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Nashville, TN. Jordan has spent the last several years sleeping in graveyards, playing on street corners, and sharing stages with well-known national acts, while playing 250-300 US shows a year, in 48 states - without the assistance of agents or management.
Born the son of a pastor and music director, Jordan began writing and playing piano at the age of 5, and has since expanded his reach to more than 20 instruments. He is now touring in support of his new album, "1924."

Tuesday Jul 1st @ 9pm Ensemble Pamplemousse
Ensemble Pamplemousse Avant-Garde::Experimental
Composer/performer collective Ensemble Pamplemousse was founded in 2003 to provide a focal point for like-minded creators with a thirst for sonic exploration. The ensemble is a close-knit group of divergent artistic personalities, emergent from training in disparate musical fields. Their collective love for the exquisite in all sonic realms leads the ensemble to persistently discover new vistas of sound at the frayed edges of dissective instrumental performance technique. Compositions aggregate each member's unique virtuosic talents into extraordinary magical moments. In the flexible moments of performance, the ensemble weaves together shapes of resonance, clusters of glitch, skitters of hyper action, and masses of absurdity into impeccable structures of unified beauty.

Watch Ensemble Pamplemousse in a unique performance
