Concerts at Clara’s: Bellwether Bayou with Slim Rosa
July 29, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT| $12
Bellwether Bayou is the solo folk project of Laura Schwartz, a classically trained violinist who has been moving steadily in a more folksy direction since living in New Orleans, Ithaca, and Xi’an, China. Based in Washington, D.C., Bellwether Bayou brings looping violin and soulful vocals together to create a modern take on classic folk sensibilities. The sound of Bellwether Bayou mixes original tunes with unexpected covers and new spins on old traditionals. Schwartz has previously performed at the Museum as part of the Clara Barton Sessions.
Slim Rosa is a side project collaboration of the founding members of The Iris Bell, Matthew Hunt and Laura Hinson. For this new project, Matthew and Laura wanted to explore a more plaintive side to their songwriting. Slim Rosa blends acoustic guitars and analog organs with vocal harmonies, evoking the duo’s connection to their Tennessee/North Carolina/Georgia roots.
This performance is part of a yearlong series: Concerts at Clara’s. Throughout the year, different local musicians will perform in the historic rooms of the Missing Soldiers Office. Throughout history, music has helped bring people together, it has been a way to share stories and to find common ground. The Clara Barton Missing Soldiers Office is proud to continue this tradition with Concerts at Clara’s.
Doors open at 7:00 pm, Concert begins at 7:30 pm.
Tours of the Museum will not be given during the concert.
