About The Event
Doors @ 6p, Music @ 7p
Ouellette, Lefebvre, and Page, a new trio based out of Portland, wants to play you all the songs from your dad’s milk crate of LPs.
OLP are three friends who agree that bass, acoustic guitar, and vocal harmonies rank among the most wonderful sounds there are. Their purpose for joining together as a band is to share the joy they’ve found playing the music they love. You can expect to hear some choice tunes from Bob Dylan, Allman Brothers, Simon and Garfunkel, The Band, Steely Dan, as well as other favorites.
Claire Dickson is a vocalist, composer, and producer from Medford, Massachusetts, currently based in Brooklyn. She expresses with words and sounds, which she improvises and assembles into stories. Much of her work is self contained: using field recordings, synthesizers, and samples she builds instruments and sound worlds that investigate dream states and sensation. Her songs and compositions span this multi-instrumental realm, as well as explorations in solo voice and electronics, text scores, and live self-accompaniment.
In addition to her solo work, Dickson is the vocalist for the Chase Elodia Quartet, co-leads the songwriting project Myrtle (with Camila Ortiz), and is a Metropolis Ensemble commissioned composer. Her music has been featured on Bandcamp New and Notable, Jazziz, and Downbeat, and has been recognized by ASCAP and YoungArts.
Claire Dickson graduated from Harvard College in 2019 with B.A. in psychology and music as well as the Robert Levin Prize in Musical Performance, the David McCord Prize in the Arts, and a Booth Fellowship.
The Wild Honey Collective formed in the summer of 2020 to perform original songs and traditional American folk music. Singers and songwriters Tommy McCord, Danielle Gyger, Timmy Rodriguez, and Dan O’Brien, joined shortly thereafter by pedal steel guitarist Adam Aymor, launched the project in rural Michigan as a back porch acoustic gathering purely for the love of music in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. The rootsy and unassuming beginning of the band led to the immediate recording of the 2021 The Wild Honey Collective: Volume 1 full-length debut album, which Local Spins described as having “its feet firmly rooted in classic country and folk while daring to allow its head to explore the technicolor clouds of psychedelia.” The principal quintet of The Wild Honey Collective has worked with an esteemed roster of collaborators live and on record, including drummers Joel Kuiper, Kevin Adams, Dave Shilakes, and Hattie Danby, bassist-guitarist-songwriter Michael Boyes, bassist Nicholas Richard, Detroit music mainstay Jeremy Porter, and Michigan roots music pillars Mike Lynch and Drew Howard, among many other talented folks. The 12-track The Wild Honey Collective Volume 2 album was issued in July 2022, building on the foundation of original and traditional music set by the debut album, with an added sense of energy brought on by a year of live performance that saw the group becoming a mainstay of the Michigan roots music circuit as well as multiple tours of the Midwest and East Coast. Prominent events that The Wild Honey Collective has performed at include Smiling Acres Music Festival (Trufant, MI), Forest Trail Music Festival (Freesoil, MI), Fallasburg Arts Festival (Lowell, MI), Hotel Music Festival (Conneaut Lake, PA), Oktoberfest (Michigan City, IN) and venues ranging from Listening Room (Grand Rapids, MI) to Port City Blue (Portland, ME) to Marigold Theater (Easthampton, MA) among nearly 100 shows since June 2021. The Wild Honey Collective is ever-evolving and encompasses sounds of traditional string band music, rowdy country rock, psychedelia, classic pop and more to preserve and nurture the lineage of Cosmic American Music.
