M&T Concert Series: The Marian McLaughlin Trio @ Recital Hall, Villa Maria College | Buffalo | New York | United States

Join us for the first M&T Lunchtime Concert Series Performance of the 2016-2017 season, featuring the Marian McLaughlin Trio.

Marian McLaughlin is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist pushing the boundaries of folk music. Weaving together imaginative lyrics, intricate classical guitar work, and rhapsodic delivery, she creates songs of exquisite detail. McLaughlin works closely with arranger and multi-instrumentalist Ethan Foote, who leads ensembles large and small in accompanying McLaughlin, including for an NPR Tiny Desk Concert in 2014 and for her 2015 album Spirit House, the follow-up to her 2014 debut album Dérive

The Marian McLaughlin Trio is the newest form McLaughlin’s music has taken for live performance, as McLaughlin (vocals, nylon-string guitar) and Foote (double bass, 12-string guitar) are joined by the immensely talented cellist-vocalist Katie Weissman. Achieving a remarkable range of sound for its small size, the trio distills the lush instrumentation of McLaughlin’s recording output (strings, winds, percussion, electric guitars) into concentrated form, offering a musical experience at once intimate and expansive. The group has toured the eastern United States extensively, drawing widespread praise for its exceptional musicianship and adventurous interpretations of McLaughlin’s songs.

“I’ve never seen anyone play guitar quite the way Marian McLaughlin does, or sing the patterns she sings.” – Bob Boilen, NPR Music’s All Songs Considered
