Concert: Brode/Scheible/Stewart, Shouts from the Sea, Nik Francis

Maplehouse Collective presents…
Friday, July 7 8:00 PM sharp$10

Lucas Brode / Nate Scheible / Luke Stewart - Returning to Rhizome is the trio of Brode/Scheible/Stewart (NY/DC). Lucas Brode, a native of New York’s Hudson Valley, is a guitarist & composer who draws from jazz harmony, experimental rock textures, and African rhythms. In addition to studying jazz guitar and composition, he spent several years learning percussive concepts from traditional Ghanian master drummer, Yacub Addy. Lucas often performs solo, leads his own jazz-fusion group, Spying, co-leads the Post-Rock / Math-Rock hybrid Hannibal Montana, and is an active performer and improviser in the NYC and Hudson Valley experimental music scenes. Luke Stewart and Nate Scheible join in on bass and drums in what promises to be a dynamic performance built on their exploration of urgent, energetic free improvisation.

Shouts from the Sea are Patrick Cain and Phong Tran. "The ancestral water mysteries turn proud. Paddling shore’s unfamiliar voyage, lost lands covered in archaic art-leafage. Mission of elastic grip-hold, tensions minimized through collective gift-offer…Voices shaped through the sea’s vast horn." --Power Moves Label
