Stone Room Concerts @ Hill Center Featuring Alt-Americana Trio Barnaby Bright

Thursday, September 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$20.00

“…a special chemistry that helps erase cynicism while giving hope that the best is yet to come.”
– ROLLING STONE

 

 

Curated and Hosted by Stone Room Concerts Founder David Holiday

Not easily defined, Barnaby Bright is an alt-Americana trio with contemporary influences that reflect their geographical journey from Brooklyn to Nashville to Kansas, while calling on Nathan’s Oklahoma roots and distant relation to Merle Haggard. The band has accumulated a dedicated following that feeds on their ability to spin storytelling into sonic treasures- a BB show will take audiences on a ride through love songs, murder ballads and deeply moving, relatable themes. The most commonly uttered phrase at the end of a show seems to be, “that was a spiritual experience.” Nathan’s virtuosic acoustic guitar & banjo playing and Becky’s effortless soaring vocals over the drone of the harmonium are pushing the boundaries of today’s indie folk landscape. The Kansas City based duo spent a decade touring and making records before recently adding Carmen Dieker to the band. The blend of their three part harmonies and Carmen’s haunting fiddle and violin-playing add an element to shows that fans of the band never knew they had been wanting.  Barnaby Bright received the grand prize at NYC’s prestigious Songwriter’s Circle, were elected to Amazon’s Top 100 Albums of the Year, and most recently their Christmas album was picked by the New York Times as one of the Top 20 Christmas Albums of the Year, with 5 of the songs being featured in the Netflix hit TV show, Sex/Life. While opening for illustrious acts such as Norah Jones and The Lumineers, Barnaby Bright continues to mesmerize audiences and convert new followers one show at a time while raising awareness of Kansas City’s diverse landscape.
