Robin Holcomb and Peggy Lee Duo/ Honey Noble

  • Royal Room 5000 Rainier Ave S Seattle, WA, 98118 United States (map)

Robin Holcomb has created a new American regionalism, spun from many threads--country, rock, minimalism, Civil War songs, Baptist hymns, Appalachian folk tunes, even the polytonal music of Charles Ives. The music that results is as elegantly simple as a Shaker Quilt, and no less beautiful.” - The New York Times 

Robin Holcomb’s perspective on her art has been forged by rich and varied musical experiences, from her development of an individual solo piano style to her work with chamber ensembles, Indonesian gamelans, improvising orchestras and musical theater. Having lived in the deep South, on the West Coast and in New York City, her surroundings have also played a key role in her musical development. Equally influenced by popular, folk, contemporary classical and avant-garde music, Holcomb is the rare artist who synthesizes all of these seemingly disparate elements into something truly her own. 

Honey Noble, led by composer and vocalist Katie Jacobson features Luke Bergman, Evan Woodle, Anna Freedman, Inge Chiles and Ivan Arteaga. Quiet melodies and clear vocals accentuate the poetic quality of contemplative and honest lyrics - stories of memories we wish we had, dreams that haunt our waking lives, and a conflicted life that marries joy and pain almost indistinguishably.
