Bowerbirds, one of North Carolina’s most treasured and revered musical acts, will be performing their first live show in over six years at this year’s Festival for the Eno. Over the past decade Bowerbirds, forged by creative partners Phil Moore and Beth Tacular, have released three critically-acclaimed albums on Dead Oceans and toured extensively playing to sold out crowds across the globe. Pitchfork called the duo’s sound “mesmerizing” and NPR went on to explain how “the band deftly mixes intricate craftsmanship and spontaneity, coupling tender melodicism with discordant vocal lines and backwoods experimentation.
Bowerbirds’ set at the Festival for the Eno marks not only the band’s triumphant return to the stage, but also an exciting new chapter in their career and a new period of creative output from Moore and Tacular. It has been too long since these songs have been sung and seems fitting that they will come back to life in the woods in which they were conceived.
