Featuring Alan Black, Principal Cello Emeritis of the Charlotte Symphony
Not easily defined, Barnaby Bright is an alt-Americana trio with very contemporary influences that reflect their geographical journey from Brooklyn to Nashville to Kansas, while calling on Nathan’s Oklahoma roots and distant relation to Merle Haggard. The band has accumulated a dedicated following that feeds on their ability to spin storytelling into sonic treasures- a BB show will take audiences on a ride through love songs, murder ballads and deeply moving, relatable themes. The most commonly uttered phrase at the end of a show seems to be, “that was a spiritual experience.”
Nathan’s virtuosic acoustic guitar & banjo playing and Becky’s effortless soaring vocals over the drone of the harmonium are pushing the boundaries of today’s indie folk landscape.
The duo spent a decade touring and making records before recently adding Carmen Dieker to the band. The blend of their three part harmonies and Carmen’s haunting fiddle and violin-playing add an element to shows that fans of the band never knew they had been wanting.
