Event description
New folk artists The Brother Brothers return to The Elm City for an intimate night of sublime harmonies and masterfully gentle playing.

About this Event

The Brother Brothers carry the folk tradition for a new generation. Identical twins David and Adam Moss honor contemporary aches with the nostalgic tenderness of another time on their debut full-length album, SOME PEOPLE I KNOW, out October 19, 2018 on Compass Records. Their stunning songcraft blends masterfully gentle guitar, cello and five-string fiddle with the sublime sort of two-part harmonies only brothers can carry. Their palpably fraternal stage presence and wonderfully familiar heart have earned repute among a modern folk scene; The Brother Brothers have opened for Big Thief, Lake Street Dive, Shakey Graves, and in the fall of 2019, embarked on a 26-date national tour supporting I'm With Her.

Recorded at Mark Ettinger’s Lethe Lounge in New York City with producer Robin Macmillan and engineer Jefferson Hamer, The Brother Brothers capably capture a modern snapshot of their surroundings. Yet, SOME PEOPLE I KNOW retains a timeless feel – something that the brothers were aiming for.

“I just want people to listen to it once and want to listen to it again,” David says of the album. “And every time they listen to it, I want them to find something new and in some way relate it to themselves. Whether they're listening to it today or in 40 years, I hope it will make them feel just the same.”

"Keep an eye out for the Brother Brothers, because they're most certainly what's coming up next". - PopMatters

“Wonderful… fabulous old-time playing and sibling harmony.” - NPR / Folk Alley

“Natural harmonies and evocative lyricism, reflecting a timeless sound and spirit.” - Relix

"a duo that pairs tasteful harmony vocals with two-person musical arrangements that weave together bluegrass and the darker side of folk.” - No Depression

“The closest thing you can find to Simon & Garfunkel in this century.” "The Brother Brothers deserve their own phylum upon an advanced musical strain not yet categorized on the roots music family tree. They are the true sound of roots music evolving. - Saving Country Music

Ian Fitzgerald

Hailed as "the songwriter's songwriter" by the Newport Folk Festival, Ian Fitzgerald has been criss-crossing the country over the past several years singing what he's written for audiences of all stripes. Based in New England, Ian performs both as a solo act and as the leader of Ian Fitzgerald & Something Else, the group formed in 2017 to bring full-band arrangements of his songs to the stage. Those songs come from the five albums of original material he has released, including his latest effort You Won't Even Know I'm Gone.

The Proud Flesh

New Haven's own, psych-america group return to the stage.

"Alexander Burnet knew no fixed address until his horse died, and where he fell Alexander decided to write an Eternal Song--a Forever Ode to his friend. Because he knew all the world does is forget, & he couldn't let that happen to his horse. He looked up from his guitar, there in the street, and saw a man crying shamelessly. His name, he later found out, was Patrick Dalton. In between fevered sobs, Patrick told Alexander that he would do whatever Alexander asked of him in the service of this Life-Wrecked animal. So was born The Proud Flesh, a band of jug-blowers and far-flung Breadline Denizens of the Great Depression, united in two men's quest to pray with every word & strum for a dead horse's Eternal Soul."

-Daniel Gallo, THE FIELD RECORDINGS
