Several years ago on a whim, k.d. lang sent an email to Neko Case and Laura Veirs that said, "I think we should make a record together." The three musicians were very different and barely more than acquaintances—but they liked and admired each other, and it instantly felt right. "She lit the flare," says Case. "She shot it into the air and we said, 'Let's do this.' Laura and I both responded immediately. There was no question."
The result is case/lang/veirs, a true collaboration between three phenomenal, self-driven artists: avant-rock icon Case, legendary musical nomad lang, and indie folk star Veirs. The women wrote all 14 songs and shared lead vocals equally, sometimes even within the same track. Full of stunning harmonies and spellbinding rhythms, case/lang/veirs travels through aches and eras, torch songs and tributes to the undersung.
PLEASE NOTE: With every ticket purchased online for case / lang / veirs, patrons will receive one digital copy of their self-titled upcoming album, in stores 6/17/16. On the album's release date, patrons will receive instructions via email on how to redeem your album. For ticket purchases made after the album release date, patrons will receive redemption instructions 7-10 days after order is placed.
Andy Shauf is a storyteller, a singer of heartbreak and regrets, isolation and loneliness, reflecting his prairie surroundings in Regina, Canada. Meticulously written over four years, Shauf’s The Bearer of Bad News is a warm and welcoming album, bathed in weathered piano, dampened drums, softly-strummed guitars and clarinet, which lends its unique timbre to frequently brighten—or hauntingly underscore—the songs’ darker undercurrents. Fans of Elliott Smith, Nick Drake and Harry Nilsson, take note.
Pre-concert music: Meriwethers
Begins in the Britt Performance Garden at 6:00 p.m.
