Stone & Snow with Luminous Crush at Stage 33 Live
BELLOWS FALLS — Named “Best Folk/Soul Artist” at the 2022 Richmond International Film + Music Festival, Stone & Snow is an Americana pairing of songwriters and multi-instrumentalists Karen Bridges and Clint Thomson. Their collaboration is filled with close harmonies and thoughtful lyrics, with a name that nods to mountain landscapes. Their latest album, Delicate and Wild, released this year, was recorded with Grammy-nominated producer David Mayfield.
Stone & Snow are on tour, and through a late-breaking unexpected twist of fate, the opportunity developed to bring them to Stage 33 Live on Friday, August 25, 2023, at 7:00 PM with a very special low $10 ticket. (Their show in Maine the following day is $25.) Luminous Crush, performing as an acoustic duo, will open.
“The band’s multi-genre sound pulls from folk, indie rock, swing and soul — somehow stitching it all together seamlessly.” — Elle Manion, NPR Music (All Songs Considered)
“Their rich vocal harmonies and warm vibe will leave you wanting to see more from this midwest duo.” — American Songwriter Magazine
“If Florence and the Machine made folk music, it might sound a little like Stone & Snow.” — Katie Anastas, NPR Music (All Songs Considered)
Karen and Clint are passionate about elevating women in music. Through hosting performances for women artists, their work collecting data on the gender balance in their local scene, and Karen’s involvement in the “Girls Rock!” franchise, Stone & Snow is invested in seeing more women grow and thrive in the music industry. They currently reside in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Regional favorites Laura Molinelli and Ben Campbell of Luminous Crush will open in their acoustic duo configuration — sometimes dubbed AcoustiCrush — with their highly developed fusion of bluegrass, outlaw country, dream pop, and indie rock.
Laura came up as a singer-songwriter during the ’90s NYC folk scene alongside such artists as Dar Williams and Lucy Kaplansky. Ben has written and produced records under the moniker “Saint Albums” on the indie label Lonely Highway, and collaborated with musical luminaries including Tony-winning artist Anaïs Mitchell (Hadestown), Caleb Elder (Route 7 Ramblers) and Jake Geppert (Bondville Boys).
Tickets for this 7:00 PM show on Friday, August 25 have been generously discounted to $10, either in advance through stage33live.com or at the door. Advance tickets guarantee entry if the intimate 40-person capacity is reached. The event will be recorded and filmed.
