LETITIA VANSANT w/ Louis Bardales and Jenny & Robin Bienemann
February 23, 2018 | 7:00 pm-9:00 pm$10
Letitia VanSant‘s lyrics are at once intensely personal and politically relevant. Hailed as one of Baltimore’s strongest songwriters, her distinctly intimate voice is fortified by sparse indie folk and Americana arrangements. Songs from her upcoming album Gut It to the Studs have already won critical acclaim from across the map, including Kerrville New Folk, the Mid-Atlantic Songwriting Contest, Falcon Ridge, Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, and Culture Trip’s Top 8 DC-Area Musicians to Follow.
Louis Bardales‘s music draws inspiration from fingerstyle guitarists worldwide as well as songwriters of all kinds. His 2017 album Attic Christs embraces his influences by following in the footsteps of Nick Drake, Bridget St John, and Roy Harper, but fractures that familiarity with his own weirdness.
The husband and wife duo of Jenny & Robin Bienemann are both singer-songwriters and instrumentalists. By turns hilarious and heartfelt, this cutting-edge acoustic duo melds original and traditional music with an elegant hint of jazz, garnering airplay on NPR, Dr. Demento, and The Midnight Special. Jenny’s new album, “Every Soul Grows to the Light,” is a favorite of Folk DJs and has drawn comparisons to Nick Drake and Rikki Lee Jones. Robin is a 2017 Kerrville New Folk Finalist. His wild guitar stylings and outrageous lyrics inspire audiences to sing-along with songs like “Jennifer Aniston” and “Chicks Dig a Big Amygdala.” Both perform and record together and separately. Combined they have 9 albums, including Jenny & Robin Bienemann LIVE.
