Willow + Wood is Scrivner and Kevin Wood, a married couple who create a sonic landscape of both solitude and beauty, hovering between the warmth of Americana and the cool darkness of dream pop. The band’s music is transcendent: both a study of the geography of place, and the constant search for home. Their songs ache with both hope and a broken heart. Those contradictions are at the core of what makes the band so special. Falling somewhere between indie pop and indie folk, they have created a sound rooted in a West Coast reverb-drenched loneliness, dripping with southern humidity and darkness – and determined to find the magic.
Reggie Garrett is the purveyor of a unique urban strain of (mostly) acoustic music incorporating a number of diverse influences, including: Folk, Latin rhythms, Blues, Gospel, Celtic, Rock, Jazz and more. His sound has strong rhythmic underpinnings, beginning with Garrett’s almost percussive guitar style. His singing reflects the folk/rock/gospel traditions with which he grew up. His voice sets a mood and carries the audience deeply into his songs. Garrett’s new CD release, York’s Lament & other stories recently entered the top ten at #5 on the NACC Folk Music radio chart.
For this performance Reggie will be joined by cellist Christine Gunn. Ms. Gunn has performed extensively throughout the Northwest and Europe with Seattle legends The Walkabouts, and as a founding member of the classically influenced acoustic trio Trillian Green.
