Thursday, June 21, 2018, 7:30 pm Little Mazarn Concert at Kitchen Sink Recording Studio $20 advance purchase
Lindsey Verrill and Jeff Johnston live as Little Mazarn between the organic and ethereal. Verrill steps out with spacious otherworldly songwriting and unconventional takes on traditional Appalachian repertoire which Johnston compliments with expertly attuned musical saw and keyboard drones. Together they create a landscape that’s both alien and familiar.
“Singer/songwriter/ethereal banjoist Lindsey Verrill borrows her musical name from this body of water, but she describes it in her press notes as an unromantic river. Maybe so we’ve never been there, and Verril’ls music does sorta recall this spare, plain ol’ river bank-ness. But in her vocal ability and in her writing, the artist known as Little Mazarn brings her songs to a place that we suggest might surpass the unromantic qualities she sticks on this humble brook. Verrill’s music, for all its simplicity, makes the heart move, and if you’re in the mood to yearn, she’s got you covered.”
