    Ghost Note Ensemble / Months of Indecision Jul 8

    Ghost Note Ensemble (Oakland, CA)
     
     

    Weaving music from Hungarian, Moldavian, Ukrainian, and Jewish folk traditions into a tuneful time traveled tapestry; a requiem for borders of future past.

     
    Months of Indecision (Olympia, WA)
     
     
    Combining elements of americana, country, and soul, Months of Indecision deliver a contemporary sound, yet maintain the candor and clarity of great folk musicians. While performing, Months of Indecision bare themselves with a rare and forthright innocence; it is a treat to be invited into the lives of these talented strangers.
