Event Details

Join for a House Concert, an intimate evening of music in the comfort of Carolyn and Andy Shapiro's Barn in Montpelier.

"Raise Up Your Eyes" with Emma Back in an evening of multi-instrumental performance, song and community engagement that investigates how to heal personal and global conflict through bearing witness to issues of feminine power, racial and religious oppression, war and ancestry.

Emma Back uses a loop pedal to create lush layers of vocal and string harmonies, accomplishing a sonic and poetic lyricism that reaches deep into the past and far into the future simultaneously. With lyric content that investigates how to heal personal and global conflict, “(Back’s) charming sensibilities, excellent structuring and arranging, as well as her ability to confound emotionally will likely bring listeners back for repeat encounters” (Jordan Adams, Seven Days).

Visit Emma's website to check out her live-looping videos to see if this is something you want to experience!
