A VERY special music Monday featuring not one but TWO of Olympia’s most beloved local performers. For the first half of the night Peter David Connelly of Rick and the Pigs and many more bands will perform his rarely heard but much appreciated solo act. For the second half of the set Eleanor Murray will take over with her ethereal but powerful acoustic style.
Peter David Connelly:
Eleanor Murray: Informed by folk tradition while adhering to no rules, Eleanor Murray’s music exists in a genre all its own. Her songs are often structurally complicated, while also sparse and open, full of warmth and light. Her chord progressions, rhythms and melodies draw as much from Appalachia as they do from jazz. Her lyrics are as cryptic as they are simple and straightforward. Each album’s sonic landscape is completely its own.
