Cold Tone Harvest set to play at Crystal Theatre Friday
CRYSTAL FALLS — Crystal Theatre welcomes the changing season with a performance by the southeast Michigan quartet Cold Tone Harvest Friday, Sept. 30 at 7 pm CT.
The name itself evokes the reflective wistfulness of a midwest autumn but patrons will not be lulled into a long-winter’s nap, according to a Crystal Theatre release. Americana tropes and soundscapes gradually reveal something else entirely. Rugged baritone vocals, suited to whiskey songs and heartache melodies turn toward brave and poetic lyrics rarely found in common folk or bluegrass genres.
Cold Tone Harvest came to be like the music itself, formulated with patience and mixed with a rugged determination. The band formed in late 2008 with the common interest of a historic and honest sound.
The release states: “The ensemble began with the partnership of soft spoken singer/songwriter Andrew Sigworth and drummer and banjoist Brian Williams. Advocating for a sonic landscape built around Sigworth’s voice, Williams softened his percussion kit. The addition of upright bassist Ozzie Andrews gave the music a rowdy drive. Guitarist and vocalist Tony Pace completed the quartet adding dobro, lap steel, and electric sounds.
“Cold Tone Harvest delivers a wall of sound that will grab the ear of music festival enthusiasts and solitary listeners alike.”
