Bowerbirds

Societies sometimes sing their best songs for centuries. Consider that antediluvian American lament "Goodbye, Old Paint," or the worn murder ballads of the Appalachians, which still send shivers down spines and inspire new renditions, variations and song cycles. Ancient as they may be, these tunes still resonate emotionally, echoing some feeling each of us has likely felt.

Bowerbirds Announce New Tour Dates

Now two weeks into tour, the Bowerbirds announce a handful of new June dates. The tour takes them farther into the Midwest and East Coast, allowing you several more chances to see the group live. Thus far, the feedback surrounding their performances has been tremendous. Taking a new form in the live setting, Phil and Beth have grown the band to a five-piece; members include Leah Gibson, Yan Westerlund and Mark Paulson.  See the new tour dates below! Then watch the video of Bowerbirds performing “Overcome with Light” for WNYC’s Soundcheck above.

“Moore and Tacular’s typical commingling of voices, strings, and primitive beats is merged with tastefully synthesized sounds, and while the subject matter remains the same—seasons, love, meadowlarks, frost—their musical breadth has widened considerably. For those who have watched Bowerbirds grow over the years, this show is mandatory. For those who haven’t, do yourself a favor: Start with this crown and work your way back to the foundation. You will not be disappointed.”Portland Mercury
