BRAINTREE FOLK at ALL SOULS PARISH HALL COFFEEHOUSE presents
MARINA EVANS is special guest performer for this Fall Event. Marina Evans combines strong, sultry vocals with unusual melodies and clever, edgy lyrics into a sound entirely her own. Since her start in her hometown of Rockport, Massachusetts, Marina has toured and recorded across the United States, in London, and in Florence, Italy. THE HILLARY REYNOLDS BAND headlines Braintree Folk's Second Season. The Hillary Reynolds Band invites listeners into a transcendent folk experience. The quintet charms with campfire congeniality, classic songs, and an astounding soulful and technical grasp of Americana. After four years, the band has risen from coffeehouse darlings to sharing stages with Norah Jones and performing at festivals in front of thousands. In advance of the band's upcoming album, HRB released a standalone single, "Crossing The Line," to whet its fans' appetites. The single and upcoming album mark a new era of widespread exposure for these roots-pop torchbearers. As a whole, the band fuses a wide spectrum of genres like rock, jazz, bluegrass, folk, country, and pop. Songwriting in HRB is a lively creative dialogue between Hillary and the guys with all hands sharing in the creative process to craft distinct pastorally beautiful songs.
