Tavo Carbone s a musical storyteller hailing from Brooklyn NY. An alum of Bennington College '07, Carbone has spent over a decade touring and independently releasing his "type of subtle glockenspiel-laden old-timey pop that simultaneously makes you feel like you are both in the past and the future." -Lawrence.com, KS"
Carbone is overjoyed to be ringing in the summer season of the Park McCullough Carriage Barn Concerts, performing a selection of both old and new songs. Alongside long-time collaborators and fellow Bennington College alum Heather Sommerlad, Michael Chinworth and other friends, the concert repertoire will feature songs from albums 2/3 Skeleton ('07), Forward ('08), Horse's Mouth ('10), Disco Forest ('13) and forthcoming studio album Narcissyphus ('17).
Heather Sommerlad (HMS) is a multifaceted musician, music educator, and seasoned performer. Her musical training began on the U.S./Mexican border, where she played the violin in public school orchestra. Heather's Mexican heritage, coupled with her training as a classical violinist, led her to draw musical inspiration from groups and composers like Los Tres Ases, Arvo Part, and Maurice Ravel. Heather continued her musical journey with a degree in music performance from Bennington College, where she was exposed to experimental songwriters like Joanna Newsom and The Dirty Projectors. While primarily a composer and performer of her own material, she is also a dedicated member of the electronic trio Old Robes, and a founding member of New York City's Horse's Mouth. Heather has released two full length albums, Her Majesty's Ship (2011) and The Efflorescence of Castles (2014). On March 12th, 2016 she released her third album- second under the Subtle Soup Records banner - the self-produced Hummingbirds and Hearthstones.
“Heather Sommerlad invokes a warm, dreamlike feeling of being drenched in the sun. Her pure voice supported by passing dissonances and infectious rhythms creates raw textures unlike anything else.” — Cellist, Adele Mori
