Musicians Night with special guest Diane Cluck
Other performers welcome as usual. Doors 8 pm, please arrive before 9 if you would like to play.
It is our genuine pleasure to welcome back the one and only Diane Cluck. The Virginia-based singer-songwriter of intuitive folk music has been influential in the development of the Anti-folk scene in the early 2000s and has collaborated with Jeffrey Lewis and CocoRosie. Singer-songwriters Laura Marling, Florence Welch (of Florence And The Machine), and Sharon Van Etten have cited Diane’s work as influential.
“she is likely one of the most refined and elegant songwriters in all of neo-folkdom. A brilliant idiosyncratic guitarist, a witty and wise lyricist, an imaginative melody writer with a powerful voice; her dark and introspective tunes are utterly captivating, sorta like an earthier Kate Bush. Watch her spellbind the room.” – The Village Voice
“Cluck’s sparse compositions seem to float defiantly from some fortress the conscious self had long left behind” – The Providence Phoenix
DIANE CLUCK employs singing as a healing, textural experience in which audiences may wander, ponder, or simply be. Her vocal style has been noted for its clipped, glottal beauty, and described by NPR as “an unlikely mix of Aaron Neville, the Baka people, and Joni Mitchell–unaffected yet unusual”. She accompanies herself on various instruments including guitar, piano, harmonium, zither, and a copper pipe instrument she built by hand.
