“Old Man” Tour Announced & Audiotree Concert Online!

Meeting you all out on the road and sharing our music has been a totally unforgettable experience. Thank you. For those of you that couldn’t make it or would like to share with friends that weren’t there, enjoy this live mini concert – produced by the wonderful folks at Audiotree. We play favorites “Crow”, “Sailor”, “Song from the Stone”, and “Bremen”, but we also wanted to introduce two new songs that have made their way into our live set and will surely be on the next album, “Mayfly” and “Weathervane”.

Oh, and also…. we’re going to TOUR the “The Old Man and The Old Moon”! We’re heading to NYC, Boston, Williamstown! Catch these final performances of our first full length play at:

The New Victory Theater / New York City, Times Square / Sept. 26-Oct. 13

Paramount Center MainStage / Boston, ArtsEmerson / November 19-23

After premiering “The Old Man and The Old Moon” at the Gym at Judson in New York City in the fall of 2012, the seven of us dove into an exciting collaboration with Chicago-based director Stuart Carden to revise the piece – first with a script/music workshop at Williamstown Theatre Festival in the summer of 2013, then with a fully staged reimagining of the show opening the season at Writers Theatre in Chicago in the fall of 2013. The resulting play, with a tighter script, no intermission, extended music, and new puppetry will now be a part of the 2014 season at Williamstown Theatre Festival, where it will continue to change and evolve with the help of original designers Lydia Fine, Bart Cortright, and the addition of Chicago sound designer, Mikhail Fiksel. This final production will open the 2014 season at The New Victory Theater in New York City, and then move to the Paramount Center Mainstage in Boston in partnership with ArtsEmerson. We’re so proud of the show, and can’t wait to share it with all our friends on the EAST COAST!

Seriously. We’re. Excited. If you’re excited too, we invite you to pass this post along to all your folk-music-puppet-theatre loving friends. Mark your calendars, we’ll see you there.

You guys are the best. Thanks again.

Love,

A National Concert Tour and a Daytrotter session!

Also – we’re really excited to be able to share our first Daytrotter session with you all. It’s a live recording of some of our concert favorites: Sailor/Song From The Stone, Bremen, I Crash, and Crow. Huge thanks to the folks at Daytrotter for having us, we couldn’t be happier to be a part of your awesome collection of music.

Take a listen here.

“Old Man” OPENS in CHICAGO!

 

The Old Man and The Old Moon at Writers Theatre

After the incredibly warm reception to the NYC debut of our show last fall, we knew we were on to something special, but we also felt we weren’t quite done with it yet. So we spent our summer going back and re-examining the script, music, and designs with the support of Stuart Carden and our wonderful new family at Writers Theatre, Jenny Gersten and everyone at the Williamstown Theatre Festival, and of course the original NYC producing team. And now, we are happy to say, it’s HERE! More music! New characters! No intermission! Tell your family! Tell your friends! A brand new version of “The Old Man and The Old Moon” opens in CHICAGO at Writers Theatre!

Bowery Ballroom, Aug 2nd / Relix Rooftop

A quick note – on Sunday morning we are packing up our cars and leaving New York for a few months to take “The Old Man and The Old Moon” to Chicago. A little over a year ago we had just released our first album and had never really played/toured in concert venues. This Friday we’ll be playing The Bowery Ballroom in NYC and it wouldn’t have been possible without the amazing support we’ve been getting from all of you. We hope you can make it out and bring some friends, it’s going to be a really wonderful night. We’ve been touring all summer and can’t wait to show you some of the new songs we’ve been working on.

Tickets are selling quickly, but you can still get yours by CLICKING HERE.

On that note: here are some of our favorite pictures from the road -

Hope to see you there!
