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
acapella or 6 voice and piano. 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!
