Jolie Holland

with Dave Dondero


Cabaret crooner Jolie Holland mixes piedmont blues guitar with brushed jazz drums and elastic vocals that hint at classic singers like Billie Holliday. A former member of The Be Good Tanyas, Holland tours with ensembles of veteran jazz musicians. Her subtle yet sensual voice enlivens her recent Anti Records effort "Springtime Can Kill You," which recalls Andrew Bird with its whimsical, freewheeling creativity. Opener Dave Dondero is a solo performer who recently released a record for Conor Oberst's Team Love imprint. Dondero's narrative tales are set to sparse instrumentation, allowing the listener to hone in on his eloquent storytelling.
