Earth Room Concerts
Vance Gilbert, with Kala Farnham opening
Sunday, June 2nd, 7:00pm
Vance Gilbert burst onto the singer/songwriter scene in the early 90’s when buzz started spreading in the folk clubs of Boston about an ex-multicultural arts teacher who was knocking ’em dead at open mics. Noted not only for being the ever consummate performer, Gilbert has recorded 12 albums, including 4 for Philo/Rounder Records and a duo album with friend Ellis Paul.
Considered by many to be an integral part of the national folk scene, Gilbert’s approach to the acoustic singer songwriter idiom is significant. His compositions, while frequently employing sophisticated melodies and harmonies that attest to his jazz roots, remain sublime attestations to the storyteller’s craft.
Kala Farnham is a multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter hailing from the Quiet Corner of CT. Kala’s signature songwriting has been described as a reinvention of the folk tradition made popular by artists such as Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez: she has been praised for her classical undertones and playful dose of Broadway theatricality onstage, and a lyricism that springs to life with creative storytelling, cultural references, and rich metaphor.
