With his unvarnished charm and arcadian spirit, TOM BROSSEAU valiantly continues a lineage of American folk musicians long thought obsolete.
There’s something exceptionally rare about Brosseau, his voice and observations filled with a bright innocence that can’t be minimized in their ability to put you at peace. One feels scrubbed clean after listening to his work—a sensation that’s only heightened when he performs in concert.
SHELLEY SHORT is a folk singer and songwriter who grew up in Portland, Oregon. Her parents, having unique artistic sensibilities, filled their old house with a slew of books, piles of records, reels of complex movie plots, not to mention the seemingly endless parade of musicians and artists who used the house as some kind of unofficial cultural headquarters. This upbringing paired with her lovely voice, found Short singing alongside M Ward, The Decemberists, Thao and The Get Down, and many others. Over the past decade Short has also released 5 albums to critical acclaim.
