Benefit Concert in Mendocino
Oak & Thorn presents: An evening of remarkable Scottish song at the Matheson theater in Mendocino, featuring Jeana Leslie and Siobhan Miller, with special guest Aaron Jones. Saturday, June 22, 2013; doors open at 7, concert at 7:30 pm.
Jeana Leslie and Siobhan Miller are shining stars on the vibrant Scottish folk scene. Blessed with lovely, natural voices that blend beautifully, they really know how to bring a song to life! Joining them for their first US tour is Aaron Jones, well known for his work with Old Blind Dogs and the Scottish-German folk fusion band Litha. The intimate space and fine acoustics of the Matheson Theater will be the perfect setting to experience their intricate vocal arrangements.
Jeana is from Orkney, and Siobhan from Penicuik, outside Edinburgh. They are both 2009 graduates of the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, where they first met and began working together, developing their shared love for song. Since coming together as a duo in 2008 and experiencing a whirlwind rise to prominence, they have performed extensively throughout the UK and Europe, including many major festivals. Critics and audiences alike have responded warmly to the duo’s fresh approach to vocal arrangements, to their friendly and open, communicative personalities onstage, and to their two acclaimed albums – In a Bleeze (2008), and Shadows Tall (2010).
