Event description

Description

Live-Looping Violinist-Singer-Songwriter Emma Back performs “Strife and Joy,” a musical dialogue traversing the landscape of human experience.

Cost: This is a donation based concert. Please come prepared to make a contribtution to the artist at the culmination of the performance.

Back uses a loop pedal to create lush layers of rhythm and harmony, accomplishing a sonic and poetic lyricism that reaches deep into the past and far into the future simultaneously. Her dynamic, multi-dimensional performance features vocal percussion, haunting melodic storytelling, jazz and klezmer inspired violin riffs and harmonic influences ranging from Eastern-Europe to American Roots.

“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 VT).

Back’s 2018 debut release “Little World” investigates how to heal personal and global conflict through bearing witness to issues of feminine power, racial and religious oppression, war and ancestry. Her 2019 concert series furthers this inquiry with new pieces that examine the root of strife and joy as felt through loss/love, death/birth, sickness/health and the inner-life of human beings. The evening will begin with a community gathering that includes opportunities for audience participation feeding into the formal concert portion of the evening. Attendees are invited to bring drinks and snacks for personal enjoyment or to share.
