NEXT AT THE HURDY GURDY
with special guest
October 14, 2017
Uncle Bonsai-Andrew Ratshin, Arni Adler and Patrice O'Neill-captivates audiences with songs that range from dark and hilarious to great insight and beauty. Seattle-based, the trio describes its performance as "what might happen if Tim Burton hijacked the Andrews Sisters en route to a Stephen Sondheim festival with the Beatles and Tom Lehrer in the sidecar."
just three voices and an acoustic guitar, Uncle Bonsai presents an often
dizzying vocal array of intricate harmony. Their songs, dark and hilarious at
times, just as often delight with moments of great insight and beauty.
Now in its 36th year, Uncle Bonsai is proud to present its ninth release, "The Family Feast: The Study of the Human Condition, First World Problems, and the Lasting Physiological and Psychological Effects of Eating Our Young.
Our opening act, Kirsten Maxwell began her career at age 5, when she performed at a small opera house in New York City. She continued appearing there until high school, when her focus shifted to musical theater, song-writing and learning guitar. She graduated from college in 2014 with a degree in creative writing and the passion to pursue a career as a singer-songwriter. In 2015, she released her first album, "Crimson." Often compared to Joan Baez, Judy Collins and Joni Mitchell, she has opened for Vance Gilbert, Bill Staines, Slaid Cleaves and Michael Johnson, among others. Her commanding stage presence, quick wit and musical virtuosity create a level of intimacy that welcomes new audiences like old friends.
