Concert Review: Breathe Owl Breathe At The Earthwork Harvest Gathering

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.

Video Of The Day: Dana Falconberry- Baby Blue Sky

Baby Blue Sky is from the upcoming September 30 release of Oh Skies Of Gray, the debut solo release from Dana Falconberry. It is a perfect example of the gorgeous melodies and modern folk sensibility that she brings to the table. Backup harmonies from Gina Dvorak & Erika Maassen , and stand up bass action by Andrew Bergmann create a triple threat sound assault that compliments Falconberry’s vocals superbly.
