Cotton Jones w/ Silver Thread Trio
Tuesday, February 26th 7:00PM
The music of Cotton Jones speaks of transition: the passage from one form, state of mind, style or place to another. Songs become doorways to the past, or windows that open on some unnamed future, where innocence can still exist and perfection is thrown to the wind.
The Glowstream is a place centered between North and South Cumberland. It’s not really called the Glowstream – just a stream that rolls to a dead end by the train tracks downtown. A place to sit, undisturbed in the cool shade, and see the interstate bend around glowing steeples, as cars and trucks break their speed – it’s beautiful – how the city materializes, an oasis, after driving many miles through the mountains along I-68 – to this spot, where it’s possible to witness all the paces change.
“Tall Hours in the Glowstream,’” is the title of their new album. Some of the songs that made the final cut were tracked in northern States, while the majority were recorded and mixed in Winterville, Georgia, as a revolving cast of players, thinkers, and singers were invited to hang in the band’s living-room studio.The resulting sounds are both rich and charmingly lo-fi, full of vivid imagery and more gorgeous vocal harmony. Hard-asking tracks like “Somehow To Keep It Going” and “More Songs For Margaret” prove the promise in this music, the feeling of something better to come if only you can hold tight a little longer…”Always the mornings keep coming…” And what a beautiful thing that is…
silver thread trio
In Tucson, Arizona’s desert rock soundscape, Silver Thread Trio plays the standout role of the muse. Soulful and sultry, they inject a softness and grace into a music scene that readily soaks up what they have to offer in the way of ethereal vocal arrangements that can soften the hardest of hearts. Their seamless three-part harmonies are their signature, and they breathe new life into century-old gospel, folk, and bluegrass tunes, charming audiences with every performance. They are an arresting, original alt-Americana act.
The angelic voices behind Silver Thread Trio are washboard-strumming Caroline Isaacs, banjo-plucking Gabrielle Pietrangelo, and guitar-playing Laura Kepner-Adney.
