Concert Review: Breathe Owl Breathe At The Earthwork Harvest Gathering

October 1, 2008 at 2:50 pm 1 comment

I recently was lucky enough to attend the 8th annual Harvest Gathering put on by Earthwork Music in Lake City, MI. The festival boasted a host of quality Michigan folk artists such as Seth Bernard, Daisy May, and Chris Bathgate. One of the highlights came from East Jordan natives Breathe Owl Breathe.
They played a wide variety of tunes, including some cuts off of their latest release, Ghost Glacier. Incorporating quirky vocals, rich cello, and smooth drum quips, Breathe Owl Breath definitely stepped up to the plate as one of Michigan’s premier folk acts.

Crowd interaction was abundant as cellist/vocalist Andrea Moreno-Beals invited the audience to transform into saber toothed tigers using their hands. Guitar/vocalist Micha Middaugh in turn jumped into the audience and instigated an epic wave.Percussionist Trevor Hobbes displayed a wide variety of instrumentation, leaping from his kit to violin, to organ. Definitely a festival worth exploring for unknown and known acts alike, the Earthwork Harvest Gathering is a special place to indulge in the finest folk music Michigan has to offer.

    I attended this show too and I agree with you. Breathe Owl Breathe are one of my favorite artists…this festival is one of the best in Michigan, and the atmosphere is nothing but awesome.
