Jan 20, 2019 Season Kickoff at 2pm: The Whispering Tree: On Tour Straight From New York City. Special Guests: Michael O'Meara & Ellen Bukstel. High Springs Community Center & Museum, High Springs, FL
Called “one of the most talented duos to take stage in NYC” by Deli Magazine, The Whispering Tree includes singer/songwriter Eleanor Kleiner and multi-instrumentalist Elie Brangbour. Together, they craft richly immersive folk-rock brimming with evocative lyrics and a panoramic musicality.
Invisible Forces, the fourth recording by the fiercely independent twosome, debuted at #1 on the Folk DJ charts, with four songs in the top 20. The album explores a deeply personal and political landscape, with themes of hope, despair and social consciousness.
