Playing music has proven to be a powerful avenue for connection and communion for Zack Green, Dani Green, Andy Hubright, Brian Seligman and Jesse Baker—the quintet that makes up Birdtalker. Zack and Dani were married in 2012 and soon after their wedding, they tried writing a couple songs together.
Now, after adding a few friends to the band, this Nashville-born folk group’s hope is simply that the more music they write and share, the more true and vulnerable interactions may be born from it. The Greens write songs as a way to share ideas they care about and sentiments they feel deeply. Often cited for their dynamic harmonies and stunning stage presence, the band now features striking vocals, guitar, keys, percussion, mandolin and bass.
Birdtalker will join a long list of Underground Sound singer-songwriter performances including Elephant Revival, Gregory Alan Isakov, Martin Sexton and Mandolin Orange to name a few. Birdtalker shares similarities to such artists taking influences from folk, Indie, roots, country and more.
Other upcoming performances in the 2017 Underground Sound series include Stephanie Rice & Colonial Blue (October 8), Allison Crowe (October 17), Bumper Jacksons (October 20) and Jarabe Mexicano (October 26). The full lineup is available at www.vilarpac.org.
