SOPAC to Host Mountain Man Vocal Trio May 30




From the South Orange Performing Arts Center:

“Magic Ship cuts a path between beauty and meaning … Mountain Man’s radiant harmonies are as pretty as they come …. Quiet may seem like an outlier in this noisy present, but Mountain Man understand its power.” —Pitchfork

“Sublimely understated, lo-fi pastorals … spine-tingling beauties”—Uncut

“Heavy with acquired wisdom, and with vocals so haunting they’ll make you shiver.” —New Yorker

Mountain Man continues its long-running US tour next month with headlining dates across the northeast. The new leg begins May 29 in Baltimore and continues through June 9 at The First Unitarian Church in Burlington, Vermont. The trio has also been announced for upcoming appearances at Newport Folk Festival and Pickathon, as well as opening performances for Greogy Alan Isakov at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado, and Mandolin Orange at Koka Booth Amphitheatre in Cary, North Carolina.

The tour celebrates the band’s long-awaited second album, Magic Ship, which Nonesuch released last fall to critical acclaim. The New York Times said the album’s “intimate, close-harmony songs … tap into an ageless essence of traditional ballads and lullabies as they contemplate companionship, family, love and death,” NPR called the record “a timeless space where three voices are all you need to be transported someplace wonderful,” and the New Yorker included it in its Ten Best Albums of 2018.

Magic Ship includes eleven original songs written by the trio—Amelia Meath, Alexandra Sauser-Monnig, and Molly Sarlé—as well as interpretations of Ted Lucas’ “Baby Where You Are,” Michael Hurley’s “Blue Mountain,” and the traditional hymn, “Bright Morning Stars.”
