Fête Music Hall Presents
with the Vox Hunters & Morgan Johnston
Thursday, August 17th
Doors: 7:00 PM
Tacoma Narrows is a 6 piece folk-rock band rapidly gaining popularity in New York City and across the country.
We've taken all the best parts of folk, bluegrass, americana, funk and rock, and stirred them up to create a new American sound, and we're becoming known for our high-energy, dance-infused live shows.
Tacoma Narrows is named after the old bridge in Washington that collapsed in the 1940s, a tragic but beautiful show of physics and the power of mother nature.
The Vox Hunters
Armand Aromin and Benedict Gagliardi are musically bound by a shared love of traditional Irish music, which originally brought them together, as well as an eclectic and ever-growing amalgam of songs both inside and far outside the realm of ‘folk music’. With fiddle in hand, a couple concertinas, banjo and a pair of complementary voices, The Vox Hunters present an exciting repertoire of driving dance tunes blended with an unorthodox collection of interesting songs and musical varia.
The Vox Hunters' philosophy is that the search for good songs is endless and satisfyingly so. We don't aim to fuse genres, push boundaries, or redefine 'folk music' -- we simply sing songs we like to sing in exactly the way we like to sing them. Our influences and inspirations are voices in the English, American, and Irish folk music realm, but we allow our ears a long musical leash.
Hailing from Providence, Morgan Johnston is a folk singer-songwriter stomping, strumming, speaking, and singing her way to empowering herself and her listeners. Her guitar and vocal arrangements are inspired by the natural landscape of places, such as Ireland, as much as by the emotional landscape of human experience. Currently studying to become a music therapist, she is constantly reminded of the healing power of the music that she aims to share
