BRIGHT MORNING STAR toured North America from 1978 - 1990 mixing folk, country, blues, jazz and a good dose of theatre. Almost 20 years later they''re back, re-grouped with 2 decades of individual performance experience under their collective belt, livelier and more astute then ever. Their backgrounds range from classical music to rock and roll, from folk to top 40, from symphony orchestra to avant-garde theater. They combine their musical and theatrical skills in a journey through the worlds of drama, politics, people, humor, satire, and spirituality.
They''ve energized their repertoire with new material while holding onto classics just old enough to sound brand new (given recurring social and political realities). Their songs are a rare combination of powerful, often original lyrics and rich melodies that shine in intricate harmonies - often a cappella or 6 voice and piano - and artfully, dancingly interpreted by American Sign Language interpreter Laura Kolb. In the course of a concert, they pass around guitars, fiddle, bass, banjo, harmonica, recorder, trombone, piano and the occasional kazoo. Their cabaret style adds a comic irony to traditional songs and a surprising depth to contemporary pieces. Lyrical, fun, dramatic and incendiary - this is a show not to be missed!
