Get a first listen of the Sound Shadows EP this Friday, March 26 at the first of our digital listening parties! Plus, you’ll get to hear a live set from The Vox Hunters and watch as Madeleine Jubilee Saito draws live on screen, creating an original work of art inspired by our EP.
We’re delighted to be hosted by Lynn Noel at The Mermaid’s Tavern, a digital folk music venue.
Knitting together dance and music, visual imagery and song, light and shadow, Sound Shadows draws details into relief and shows the unseen. A collaborative creation of Veronica Barron (theater artist, puppeteer, storyteller, singer), Julia Friend (banjo player, singer, visual artist), and Rebecca McGowan (Irish and percussive dancer).
