"Truly beautiful, slowly meandering soundscapes… A beautiful voice and a talent for melodies."—Rolling Stone
Strange, haunting, and romantic, Edison Woods revels in luscious, sad songs. Singer Julia Frodahl’s heavenly vocals layered on the bands’ moody chamber pop create “a beautiful cross between the sounds of Elysian Fields and the sentiments of David Lynch” (Flavorpill NYC). Live, their musical passages, spoken word, and discreet gestures sweep the audience into their dreamlike world. www.edisonwoods.net

The fifty acts Svigals booked revolve around three themes: Jewish music, virtuoso female instrumentalist/improvisers/composers, and all kinds of string music, traditional and contemporary. From an electronic violist turning Bartok on his head to the lightning speed of traditional Bulgarian fiddling; from a master of the traditional klezmer clarinet to spontaneous 21st century keyboard explorations of those ancient melodies, the month is a feast of the most interesting music coming out of New York and beyond.
