    LOCATION: Laughing Goat Coffeehouse - 1709 Pearl St

    CATEGORIES: Live Music

    Americana/folk band The Starlings will perform on Wednesday, Sept 15th at Laughing Goat Coffeehouse, 1709 Pearl St in Boulder. The Starlings are currently on tour of the American West in support of their third full-length album, Bright Light. Show is at 9:30pm, and is free to the public. Bright Light is a collection of tunes that continue The Starlings’ reputation for three-part harmonies and melodic hooks. Since emerging on the Americana folk scene in 2005, The Starlings have been releasing records and touring the nation in a short, yellow bus called Saunders. En route to a dusty venue in the southwest, a cozy listening-room in the Midwest, or a well-burnished club in Boston, they are spurred on by the guitar strum, the kick drum, and the music in the spinning wheels all around us. The Starlings’ country-folk sound is influenced by the variety of their backgrounds. The Starlings’ previous albums and tours have garnered extensive reviews, chart-listings, spots on year-end lists and favor both here and abroad. Their debut album, Songbook (2006), put them on KEXP’s "Top Ten Northwest Bands" for eight weeks. The Starlings have performed with Todd Snider, The Avett Brothers, Fred Eaglesmith, The Wood Brothers, and Eilen Jewell. “Call it lilt with an edge.” – Leicester Bangs (UK) "The Starlings vocal harmonies, acoustic goodness and sweet blend of folk and country set the stage for the band's storied original songwriting and the compelling presence of vocalist Joy Mills.” -KEXP.org All information can be found at starlingsmusic.com or myspace.com/thestarlings
