*please note to find the location go behind Speeder and Earls, look for the bees on the wall and follow the stairs up About the artists: Emma Back is an avant-folk live-looping violinist, singer-songwriter who creates lush layers of Eastern-European influenced vocal and string harmonies, accomplishing a sonic and poetic lyricism that reaches deep into the past and far into the future simultaneously. With lyric content that investigates how to heal personal and global conflict, “(Back’s) charming sensibilities, excellent structuring and arranging, as well as her ability to confound emotionally will likely bring listeners back for repeat encounters” (Jordan Adams, Seven Days). www.emmabackmusic.com Sororise was raised by the Midwest and nurtured by the PNW and now she’s on tour from Urbana, IL. With a background in folk tradition, she now takes up the loop station, synthesizer and electric guitar to find a new way to folk. She writes with her warm guitar, soft harmonies to parse out her identity in this American moment as a feminist, ally, anti-fascist, and friend. https://emilymckown.wixsite.com/sororise
