Crystal Bright and Unwoman - Private Parlor Show (($10 before/$15 day of show))

Crystal Bright

Crystal Bright, award-winning singer-songwriter, ethnomusicologist, composer, and multi-instrumentalist, has with her band the Silver Hands played over 700 shows from Canada to Austin, TX and New Orleans to Nashville the past 6 years.

Bright performed with the North Carolina Symphony in 2011 on an arrangement of her song "Toy Hammer," and has performed at various festivals around the country (SXSW, Savannah Stopover, FloydFest, DragonCon, Midpoint Music Fest, The Steampunk World's Fair, Shakori Hills, and many others.) She took Runner Up for On the Rise at Floydfest 2013 for a return set in 2014, and was named Best Singer in 2012, Best Songwriter in 2014, and Best Musician in the Triad in 2015 by Greensboro's Yes Weekly.

Bright has an eclectic, haunting but yet whimsical, carnivalesque folk rock sound, dubbed "kaleidophrenic cabaret." She plays accordion, musical saw, concertina, piano, Taiko drum, adungu (Ugandan harp), and various others, leaving people captivated with her operatic and soulful vocals and virtuosic command of her exotic instruments.

Her 2012 album Muses and Bones received glowing reviews in the United States & Europe, as well as radio airplay in the US, UK, & Canada, including NPR and BBC appearances. The latest collaborative visual album, The Absolute Elsewhere was released locally Nov. 22, 2014 at the Carrboro ArtsCenter with a multi-media performance including aerials, acrobats, and other dancers and had a national release on May 19, 2015.

Unwoman (aka Erica Mulkey) is a San Francisco-based solo cellist-singer-songwriter. Her live sets feature stand-up electric cello and the lush textures of live looping. With timeless songs about love gone wrong and classic covers, Unwoman has been a favorite solo act at major steampunk, goth, and sci-fi-related events all over North America. She received two Steampunk Chronicle Reader's Choice Awards in 2015, for best solo musician and best album (Circling, her ninth self-produced album). Her song “The Heroine” was featured on Welcome to Night Vale and in the documentary Vintage Tomorrows. Unwoman has performed with Amanda Palmer, Voltaire, Abney Park, Rasputina, Stripmall Architecture, and Vernian Process, among many others. She is active on Patreon and has run a dozen successful kickstarter campaigns.
