The Winterlings
Thursday, April 26

The Tavern is pleased to present the local debut of national recording artists, The Winterlings. With songs as vivid as feature films, the Seattle based indie-folk duo takes listeners on unexpected journeys, soaring with astronauts, hitchhiking in Alaska, fighting beside a female Civil War soldier, and walking deeper into the forest of human existence. PASTE magazine called their January 2016 release, You Are Acres, “a gorgeous follow-up to their stunning debut” (2010’s The Animal Groom), and No Depression called their November 2016 album, Poems That Live As People, “absolutely spellbinding.” Their September 2017 release, American Son, has won them international acclaim from BBC Radio, American Roots UK, and more. Featuring male and female lead vocal and harmonies, guitar, violin, banjitar and drums, The Winterlings build bonfires of sound to dance and dream beside.
