Berkeley House Concert with Melody Walker & Jacob Groopman

Melody Walker and Jacob Groopman will perform at Poplar Playhouse on February 16, 2013 at 8 p.m. $15 suggested donation, all $$ to the artists. BYOB/snacks.

Hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area and the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, respectively, singer-songwriter Melody Walker and picker extraordinaire Jacob Groopman have fused their influences into a style they like to call “Americali.” They define it as Americana with a California twist, but of course, it’s much more. Dra
wing from genres including bluegrass, rock, jazz, classical, Afrobeat, samba and Balkan folk, yet staying close to their American folk roots, the duo create literate music that honors tradition, yet sounds completely of the moment.

On Walker’s debut album, GOLD RUSH GODDESS, the couple wrap their voices in tight harmony over intricate textures of banjo, guitar and mandolin as they sing of ancient truths and futuristic myths, conveying a stunning level of songwriting and musical versatility throughout.
